About the Item: "Fruteras" is an original oil painting on canvas signed by the Peruvian artist Ernesto Gutierrez. Gutierrez is known for his deep saturation of colors normally, but with this piece he paints in a gentler color tone. The soft colors provide the feeling of an early morning and a soft moment. Ernesto Gutierrez signed the work in the lower right corner. Artwork Size: 25 3/8" x 31 3/8" Frame Size: 31 7/8" x 37 7/8"

Gutierrez’s work is, in part, shaped by his Peruvian roots: pre-Colombian forms and native Peruvian art. The paintings’ subject matter engages traditional themes of Peruvian peasant life. The artist is also influenced by the modern French masters, including Cézanne, Gauguin, and Matisse. He is a brilliant colorist, reflecting the palettes of Gauguin and Matisse and the juxtaposition of contrasting colors of Seurat’s pointillism. Some of his paintings employ a Cubist simplification of forms and volumes. "Fruteras" demonstrates Gutierrez’s mastery of color as he depicts the bounty of the traditional outdoor fruit market.
