Prilidiano Pueyrredón

Prilidiano Pueyrredon (1923 - 1870) was an Argentine painter, architect and engineer. He painted everyday themes and was known as a costumbrist, as Hispanic realists are called. He spent much of his life in Europe, both Spain and France, and lived for 3 years in Brazil. Pueyrredon was the first Argentine artist to paint nudes and one of the first artists to paint gauchos. He painted portraits of Argentine aristocrats to gain favor with the upper class as he was never considered one of theirs. Pueyrredon left his mark of the city of Buenos Aires as both an architect and engineer. He designed Plaza de la Victoria and worked on the restoration of many BA monuments.
