26 Camilo Egas Museum in Quito, Ecuador

Inside of this 18th century colonial home is a museum dedicated to the art of Camilo Egas. He was born in Quito in 1889 and studied painting in Madrid and Paris. During the 1920s, he founded the Indigenist Movement in Ecuador by portraying indigenous people in a realistic fashion on large-scale canvases. His style evolved several times before his death in 1962. Toward the end of his career, Camilo Egas favored abstract expressionism.
