Carmen Herrera (May 31, 1915 – February 13, 2022) was a Cuban-American abstract, minimalist painter. She was born in Havana. She lived in New York City beginning in the mid-1950s. Herrera's abstract works brought her international recognition late in life.
Herrera became known for her landscape abstract art based in Cuba such as Blanco y Verde (1959) which depicts landscape of the Cuban oceanside. Some of her work appears at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C..
