Camilo Egas, Eduardo Kingman, Oswaldo Guayasamin, Legarda, oil painters

Ecuador was a famous art center during the colonial period. The first of a long line of colonial painters was Adrian Sanchez Galque. He taught Miguel de Santiago, the most famous of all the Ecuadorian colonial artists. Santiago, in turn, taught Nicolas Javier de Goribar. These three artists formed the "glorious trinity" of colonial Ecuadorian painting. In 18th-century Quito, sculpture flourished through the works of Manuel Chil Caspicara and Bernardo de Legarda. In the 20th century, a generation of talented artists inspired by contemporary Mexican painters arose in Ecuador, including Camilo Egas and Eduardo Kingman, both of whom are muralists, engravers, and oil painters, and Oswaldo Guayasamin, a painter, sculptor, and graphic artist.
