A South American landscape with imposing mountains forms the backdrop for a man on a burro watering his animals. Spring or Summer flowers are in bloom adding to the serenity and beauty of the solitary moment. Condition is good with light soiling. Signed lower right.
The oil on board was painted by Hector Mancayo ( 1895 - 1984 ) a significant Ecuadorian painter well known for his human figures and portraits. He also left a significant corpus of landscape scenes, of which the one offered here is a good example. His work was sponsored by the political elite of Ecuador which enabled a long productive career. His artistic talents were passed to his children who continue the dynastic vocation of art.
