Manuel Reyna Argentinian, 1912-1989


Considered a national treasure in his homeland, Manuel Reyna was born in Cordoba, Argentina in 1912, where he lived and worked until his death in 1989. Trained as a brick mason and self taught as an artist, Reyna was recently honored by the Museuo Caraffa in Cordoba with a major career retrospective.


Manual Reyna's paintings possess a sense of selflessness as he silently and openly shares his world, his Argentina with the viewer. There is a wonderful sense of solitude within these paintings, a harmony of nature and man commmunicated through a sensitive approach to color and impeccable attention to composition.
