This is a beautiful oil painting on canvas by ENRIQUE CAMINO BRENT. This painting is nicely framed and depicts a young indigenous man. The painting measures 6 3/8" X 9" ( 16.1 cm X 22.8 cm ). The wooden frame measures 14 1/4" X 17" X 1 1/2" (36.2 cm X 43.2 cm X 3.8 cm ). Enrique Camino Brent was born in Breña, Lima, Peru, in 1909. His father was Don Francisco Camino Anderson and his mother Doña Mary Brent Delgado. His family belonged to the Peruvian aristocracy. At the age of 13, he was admitted to the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes. He was not only an artist, but an architect from the Escuela de Ingenieros de Lima. As a painter, he was a student of Daniel Hernandez's and Jose Sabogal's. His first exposition was in Lima in 1936. Then, his art was shown in the USA, Mexico, Argentina, Europe, and even in Morocco. His art shows the love for his country, its people, its nature. His art is very elastic and dynamic. In his paintings, there is always a message of Peruanism. Enrique Camino Brent was the great-grandson of William Brent,an extraordinary English painter of the 17th Century, pioneer of plastic arts in the USA; on his mother's side, he was related to John Carroll Brent, the Archbishop of Baltimore and founder of Georgetown University in Washington DC.
