Alexander (Alejandro de) Canedo

Alexander Cañedo was born in Mexico City in 1902 to a Spanish father and an American mother.  At the age of 15, Cañedo went to Paris where he studied at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts. The noted sculptor Jean Magrou recognized his talent and became his teacher. In 1923, Cañedo went to Rome to further his studies.  

After a trip to Mexico in 1927, Cañedo was appointed attaché to the Mexican Embassy in Rome, and the following year he held his first exhibition of pencil drawings at the Circolo Artistico, followed by other European exhibitions. In 1928, Cañedo came to the U.S. and soon began exhibiting in New York City and elsewhere as "Alejandro de Cañedo" or just "Cañedo."
