"Convento de San Francisco" Oil on Canvas, Circa 1940s

Circa 1936-1953

About

This circa 1936-1953 oil on canvas mounted to board architectural scene entitled "Convento de San Francisco" is by Carl Barnaš (1879-1953), German painter, printmaker, and art restorer. He was born in Friedberg, Germany and studied art in Kassel and Berlin before moving to Paris to study at Academie Julien-Colarossi. Barnas traveled and painted plein air landscapes throughout Europe, especially in Holland, Belgium, and England, before fleeing Nazi Germany in the 1930s. The Barnas family moved to Quito, Ecuador, where Barnas taught at the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes. Unable to make a living as an artist in Ecuador’s poor economy, Barnas harnessed his technical skill and creative abilities to open a restoration studio in 1938. Throughout the 1940s, he restored several hundred 17th and 18th century colonial paintings in Quito’s churches and monasteries, as well as works in private collections. A dedicated plein air painter, Barnas often joined the Central University of Quito’s science department; journeying to remote Amazonian and Andean locations and painting landscapes and botanical illustrations. Quito, Ecuador. Signed lower left Dated, signed, and titled on reverse.
