Oil on board. Featuring a landscape scene. Signed and attributed to Juan Guzman-Maldonado (Born in Chile, moved to America, b. 1948), on the lower right corner. Signature and title on verso "Los Osos", signed "J. Guzman". Born in Chile in 1948, he moved to California in 1972. Previously influenced by Fauvism and Expressionism in his object and non-objective painting, Guzman-Maldonado began painting the California landscape, en plein air, very early in the morning or right before sunset. He cites Charles Reiffel, Maurice Braun and Charles Fries as influences. He began painting with his fingers and realized that objects performed better than the paint brush. His palette became heavy and colors abstracted from the sun were moved onto masonite board, creating timeless imagery.
