Jerald Melberg Gallery proudly presents an exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Argentine artist, Manuel Reyna. Considered a national treasure in his homeland, Reyna was born in Cordoba, Argentina, in 1912, where he lived and worked until his death in 1989. Trained as a brick mason and self-taught as an artist, Reyna was honored by the Museo Caraffa in Cordoba with a major career retrospective in 2004.
Reyna’s paintings possess a sense of selflessness as he silently and openly shares his world, his Argentina, with the viewer. There is a wonderful sense of solitude within these paintings, a harmony of nature and man communicated through a sensitive approach to color and impeccable attention to composition.
