Roberto Montenegro

Roberto Montenegro was a painter, illustrator, and printmaker, born in Guadalajara, Mexico. In 1905 he enrolled at the Escuela Nacional de Arte in Mexico City and won a grant to study in Europe. After spending two years in Madrid, Montenegro left for Paris to continue his art studies. Heavily influenced by Picasso, Braque, and Gris, he combined reality and fantasy in his work using Cubism, Symbolism, and Surrealism. Upon his return to Mexico he became a strong advocate of the Latin-American Modern Art movement and in 1921, organized the first exhibit of Mexican folk art. In 1951 he was publisher of the magazine, "Retablos Mexicanos," devoted to Modernism in the arts. Later in his career, Montenegro was appointed director of the Museo de Arte Popular in Mexico City.
