Annotations

Ver y estimar magazine was an editorial endeavor directed by Jorge Romero Brest (1905–89) with the support of his disciples. It was published thirty-four times between April 1948 and December 1953. Following an interruption that lasted a few months, publication was resumed and the magazine appeared ten more times before the second phase of its existence ended in October 1955. Damián Carlos Bayón was the editor-in-chief.
 
Blanca Stábile (1911–91) was one of Romero Brest’s disciples. She was on the editorial board and wrote art reviews for Ver y estimar magazine. In 1958, Stábile became director of the National Organization for the Protection and Security of Women, at the Ministry of Labor and Social Security, and later was named Argentine ambassador to the United Nations (UN).
