Gaston Garreaud

Garreaud studied in Italy and France and dedicated part of his life to experimenting in painting three-dimensional shapes using pre-Columbian artifacts (pottery and textiles). This unique style aroused great interest in both his native Peru and abroad, which led to an exhibit of his work at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC in 1966. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the death of this self-taught artist who dedicated his life to promote Peruvian culture in many areas.
