Gustavo Montoya
(1905 - 2003)


Mexican artist Gustavo Montoya paints genre scenes and still lifes, but he is mostly known for his portraits of children. His recognizable format is a child dressed and seated in the middle of the painting. He worked in oils, sometimes incorporating mixed media, and lithography. He was part of the Mexican muralist group with Diego Rivera, David Siquieros and Jose Orozco.
