Illustrations of Peruvian people by Pancho Fierra

Pancho Fierro - Life of Lima

  • Perth Cultural Centre

This exhibition highlights the exclusive illustrations by self-taught Peruvian Artist Pancho ‘Francisco’ Fierro.

Pancho Fierro (born 1810, Lima, Peru) was best known for his costumbrismo watercolours chronicling the types, customs and costumes of everyday life of Limeños (residents of Lima). Fierro’s free interpretation of space and proportion in his illustrations become part of a larger tradition of documenting the people and places of Latin America, a tradition in which European traveler-artists and scientists, participated.

Exhibiting on the PCC screen throughout January.
