Pedro Figari is often compared to other Latin American artists, such as Diego Rivera and Tarsila do Amaral, for working with them for a new self-confidence in modern art in Latin America. For a long time, she had not been able to emancipate herself from the European tradition.

Even before studying painting, Figari made sketches in watercolor and oil paints, to whose naive style he only found his way back through a strongly Italian and academic phase. First, Figari studied law and was active as a trained criminal and civil defense in the cause of the poor. With his pictures, he wanted to make his compatriots to love just about their homeland, which was theirs even without much financial wealth. His paintings therefore usually show scenes of traditional Uruguayan life such as the Bocia Railway, Pampas or the local folklore dancers in the Candombe.

Living as a young man in France for almost ten years, Figari settled in Buenos Aires, became a Member of Parliament in Uruguay, Minister of Foreign Affairs in London, and returned to Montevideo shortly before his death. Figari always painted the pictures of his homeland from memory. His artworks are therefore less a documentation than a reconstruction of the life and country of the gauchos. Without wanting to reproduce the historical accuracy of a scene, Pedro Figari succeeded in depicting the emotional energy of the moment experienced. © Meisterdrucke
