Oil painting on canvas measuring 18.5 x 27 inches, unstretched
Juan Sisay was Santiago Atitlan's first and most famous painter. He had three sons, all of whom painted, as well as a number of grandsons and nephews, all of whom use some variation of "Juan Sisay" in their names. This painting is by Juan's grandson Juan Francisco Sisay. I purchased it from a gallery in Santiago Atitlan in 2005, from Juan Sisay's grandson Juan Diego. Diego told me that the portrait was of Juan Sisay. Juan Francisco Sisay is one of Guatemala's most accomplished contemporary painters. He has exhibited in many galleries throughout Guatemala.
