    Julio Payro (1899-1970)Argentina
    "Portrait of a Woman", signed and dated lower left 1950
    Oil on canvas board
    Image: 13.25" x 10"
    Frame: 22" x 18.75"

    With just a few quick lines over flat fields of color, Payro captures the essence of his sitter. The raised eyebrows and sideways glance portray this keenly alert woman as if she just heard something in the other room. The elegant shapes and lines capture the classical beauty of this woman in her floral print dress, who we might well recognize if we saw her on the street.

    Julio Payro (1899-1971) began his career as a painter, but from 1928 dedicated himself to art criticism, eventually building a reputation as a major analyst of 20th century art movements in Argentina and Latin America. But he never gave up painting entirely.
