Francisco Zuniga (1912-1998)

Internationally acclaimed sculptor and printmaker Francisco Zuniga studied drawing, stone sculpture and engraving at the School of Fine Arts in San Jose, Costa Rica. Later, in 1936, he studied stone carving at La Esmeralda Mexico City. He was appointed to the faculty of La Esmeralda where he remained until his retirement in 1970. Zuniga’s art reflects a love and respect for Central American people and traditions. In 1972 he created his first lithograph as part of the Mexican Masters Suite. As a compliment to his emotionally powerful sculpture, Zuniga’s prints articulate the sensitivity and sensuality of the human figure.
