Hector Moncayo (1895-1984)

Patriarch of the "Moncayo Painters" of Ecuador, he attended the Escuela de Bellas Artes de Quito [School of Fine Arts of Quito].  He attended the school only for a short time, starting to paint independently in 1908.  Cultural landscapes, street-side scenes, flowers, human figures, and portraits became his characteristic themes.

He married Elena Merino who also developed a gift for the arts and began painting bucolic landscapes in small formats.  Two of their children as well as other members of the extended family also became painters.
