  • Provenance: Private Collection, California
  • Notes: Roberto Goyri (b. 1924) was a Guatemalan painter, sculptor, and muralist who completed his artistic studies at the Arts Students League and Sculpture Center in New York at the age of fourteen. After returning to Guatemala in 1952, Goyri became the director of the National School of Plastic Arts and exhibited his work in the United States, Spain, Ecuador, and Nicaragua. The Museum of Modern Art in New York City acquired his semi-abstract sculpture "The Wolf" (1951) in 1955, and the artist later became known for his images depicting Guatemalan history from the rise of the Mayan Empire to the present day. Goyri died in Guatemala City in 2007.
