Francisco Zúñiga

Francisco Zúñiga (1912-1998), born in San José, Costa Rica, was a Mexican artist known for his stylized figurative paintings and sculptures. His work often incorporates qualities of pre-Colombian art, especially in his stone sculptures characterized by their simplified forms. He is also known for his sculptures of women and emphasis on themes of motherhood. His monumental works were primarily made in onyx or cast in bronze and combined classical sculptural methods with indigenous archetypes. His paintings and drawings also illustrated Western influences, but maintained a clear link to Pre-Hispanic art. His works are in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico City, among others.
