Improving Montoya´s BiographyOlga Sedano Velasco
Paul, Mr Montoya lived in the years that in Mexico was very important to portrait any way of the mexican life. That includes the "real mexicans", those who were conquered and their color and mexican stuff. Besides his walls, Diego Rivera painted indigenious (known as indian)kids, and, if you look up for more, you may also find a lot of paintor who lived in Mexico in the 40´s years painting kids. Maybe mr. Montoya found his personal signature portraiting kids showing toys and mexican crafts to enhance real mexicans.
Hope you enjoyed this little biography of my favorite artist and the inspiration for my terracota clay dolls.

Hi does anyone know how the artist began to paint children holding a focal point like a flower or toy boat?
