The Gene Autry museum in Los Angeles is showing one of Fortunato Arriola's paintings (he is also my great great grandfather).

Hi, I'm a descendent of Fortunato Arriola and would welcome contact from others who are related to him.
Has anyone studied or made a public comment on the painting "Tropical Landscape" painted by F. Arriola in 1870? It is at the Oakland Museum and depicts 4 people who "should be" riding 4 horses but there are only 3 horses and the back legs of one of the horses (the white one) are not visible.
It's a very interesting configuration as it isn't obvious.
Steve Martin and Fortunato Arriolo

I am posting a quote from an article written by Steve Martin, the actor,about his art collection. He mentions the life and work of Fortunato Arriolo. The article appeared in the 4/1/2001 issue of the NY Times.
"MY collecting has been guided by various philosophies, too. One
was to collect by image: a Luminist picture was a Luminist picture
whether it was by Kensett (a master) or Fortunato Arriola (an
unknown but fine artist who, incidentally, died young, drowned at
sea during a ship fire)."
