Roberto Montenegro (1887-1968) .

In 1903, Roberto Montenegro began studying painting in Guadalajara under Felix Bernardelli, a Brazilian-Mexican artist who had established a school of painting and music in that Mexican city, and he produced his first illustrations for the magazine "Revista Moderna”. He lived in Mexico City and began to study at the Academia de San Carlos. One of his fellow students was Diego Rivera. Eventually he was awarded a scholarship from the Mexican government to study at the Academia de San Fernando in Madrid. He moved to Paris in 1907 and became interested in cubism. He had the fortune of meeting Picasso, Juan Gris, and Braque while he stayed in France. Eventually he returned to Mexico, and painted many portraits. He published "Retablos Mexicanos" in 1951 and exhibited in Mexico and abroad, earning him several recognitions. He was fortunate enough to have a retrospective of five decades of his work be held at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City in 1965. Roberto Montenegro died on October 13th, 1968.
