Signed lower left: Carreño
Acquired by the present owner from the artist on November 11, 1963.
Anibal Carreño's dark paintings of Argentine society, particularly of the atrocities committed by its de facto military government, characterize the agenda of the "Southern Group," which also included artists Leo Vinci, Renee Morón, and Mario Loza. A native of Buenos Aires, Carreño participated in noteworthy exhibitions, including the 1958 IV Biennial of São Paulo, the 1960 "View of Argentine Painting" in Mexico, and the 1963 "Art of America and Spain" in Madrid. At the end of his career, he painted portraits of important Argentine personalities, such as Hipolito Yrigoyen, Carlos Monzón, Jose Hernandez, and Arturo Jauretche.
Overall very good condition: white accretion on lower right edge.
