Oil on stretched canvas measuring 25 x 16 inches
Paintings dating from the 1950s and 1960s signed S. Endara are usually attributed to an artist named Segundo Endara. No further information has been provided about this artist. Because of their similarity in subject matter and painting style to the works of the Moncayo families of Ecuadorean painters (especially Hector Moncayo), some have suggested that these are early or commercial works of one or more of the Moncayo artists. I can add no particular information to clarify this uncertainty, but it is certainly obvious that "S. Endara" was closely familiar with the work of the Moncayos.
Oil painted on stretched canvas; framed in a somewhat later gold gilt wood frame. Size of painting is 25 x 16 inches without the frame, 32 x 23 inches including the frame. The painting is clean and the paint layer quite stable, though there is craquelleur over the entire surface. Otherwise, the painting and frame are in very nice condition. Signed lower right "S. Endara".
