Biography Armando Garcia Nunez
"Armando García Nuñez' work depicts Mexican painting between the colonial period and the Revolution. His uncluttered landscapes embrace rural Mexico; there are spacious valleys and adobe structures under open skies, as in the oil painting, Grandeza Mexicana. His graphite drawings focus on details; an arch, a set of steps, or a small group of trees.
He had his first exhibit in 1907; in 1911 he showed a notable collection of small canvases at the Academy of San Carlos.
