Ricardo Martínez de Hoyos (1918-2009) began his artistic career in 1940, painting still-life portraits and realistic landscapes. In the 1960s, his artistic restlessness turned to the representation of the human figure. To a large extent, Martínez found his inspiration in pre-Hispanic pieces, basically anthropomorphic, coming from different cultures of Mesoamerica.
