Fernando De Szyszlo

Fernando de Szyszlo (1925-2017) was a key figure in the development of abstract art in Peru. Starting in the mid- 1950s, de Szyszlo became known for his muted palette and depictions of his pre-Columbian roots. 

Born in 1925, de Szyszlo went to the Pontifical Catholic University in Peru to study art. After his studies, he traveled to Europe eager to participate in the art scene, where he studied the works of great masters in Florence and Paris. Inspired by a variety of artistic movements like Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, and Futurism, de Szyszlo’s work has continuous engaged audiences and captivated Pervuian art history. His appreciation of the past and the present is immediately recognizable, linking two time periods together. 

His works are held at imminent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas; The Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and in private collections around the world. He’s been included in over 100 solo exhibitions in Latin America, Europe, and the United States. De Szyszlo continues to be a leading artist in Peru after his death in 2017.
