    Art Brokerage: Eduardo Kingman Ecuadoran Artist: b. 1913-1998. He was one of Ecuador's greatest artists of the 20th century, among the art circles of other master artists such as Oswaldo Guayasamin and Camilo Egas. Kingman was born in Loja, Ecuador. He first studied under Victor Mideros at the Escuela de Bellas Artes, in Quito. Further studies took him to Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia and finally to San Francisco Art Institute, California (1945-1946). People from the United States first became acquainted with Kingman's art in 1939, when he assisted Camilo Egas with the paintings and decorations for the Ecuadorian Pavilion at the New York World's Fair. For a period of twenty years, Eduardo Kingman held the post of principal professor at Quito's Escuela de Belles Artes (School of Fine Arts) as well as Director of the Museo de Arte Colonial de Quito. In 1940, Kingman founded the Caspicara Gallery in Quito. At this time and later his original prints and paintings were exhibited internationally in such cities as Paris, Washington, San Francisco, Mexico City, Caracas and Bogot. Near the end of his career, Kingman was honored with a one man exhibition of his art at the United Nations, New York. The unifying theme of Kingman's paintings, lithographies and woodcuts is expressing the social realities of Ecuador's indigenous peoples. He was known as the "Painter of Hands." Kingman was also active as a writer and social activist. He died in Quito, Ecuador in 1998. Two of his paintings were stolen from the Posada de las Artes Kingman Museum in 2003 but were safely recovered. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
