Framed 24 1/2" H X 29" W. Brazil. 20th century. Biography (Courtesy of the Encyclopedia Itau Cultural Visual Arts) – Francisco Rebolo Gonsales (1902 – 1980) was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He expressed on interest in art at an early age and began art studies at the School of Professional Men in Bras and worked as an apprentice decorator. Gonsales then turned his attention to soccer and played from 1917-1934. He eventually resumed his art studies and in 1926 opened his own studio. Subsequently, he began to share a studio with other artists and this group became known at the Santa Helena Group. Awards include a prize for works exhibited in the 3rd National Exhibition of Modern Art. After 1959, he also experimented with engraving and produced several works dedicated to this medium.
