condition: excellent

Fanny Raquel Moncayo (signed F. Raquel Moncayo) is part of the famous Moncayo families of Ecuador.

$300 OBO

A very brief history, along with galleries of the various family members is here: http://www.moncayo-art.com/artists/

Her specific page is: http://www.moncayo-art.com/fraquelmoncayo/

One painting is of a man harvesting his crop with the Cotopaxi volcano in the background; the other is of a man in a small boat on a lake.These two paintings were bought by my father on one of his business trips to Ecuador in the late 60's or early 70's, possibly from the artist herself (as he usually tried to do).

I remember them being rolled around a cylinder of balsa wood when he brought them back in his luggage, he then had them framed in Salt Lake City, Denver or Grand Junction.

This appears to be her Facebook page: https://es-la.facebook.com/fannyraquel.moncayo

Both are the same size and appear to be on canvas boardsframed - 25.5" x 21.5"image - 20" x 16"
