Original Signed Hector Moncayo Portrait Painting

  • $ 47500

Original oil on board portrait painting by Ecuadorian artist Hector Moncayo (1894-1984). Depicting one of his favorite and typical subject matters, an old woman who is holding a candle up to illuminate her path. Most likely completed in the 1950s. Her wizened face is heavily lined, yet her toothless smile intimates a kindly old lady in profile.

Hector Moncayo (1895 - 1984) Patriarch of the "Moncayo Painters" of Ecuador, he attended the Escuela de Bellas Artes de Quito [School of Fine Arts of Quito]. He attended the school only for a short time, starting to paint independently in 1908. Cultural landscapes, street-side scenes, flowers, human figures, and portraits became his characteristic themes.

Signed on the bottom right: H Moncayo
