A few examples of Fine Art
from The SEKOTS studios Collection of Original Comic & Cartoon Art
“Blonde Rain Girl” (1986, Oil on canvas, 20″x24“) by Miguel Angel Gomez (Montanola) (December 29, 1906 – January 9, 1994)
Miguel Angel Gomez Cruz (Montanola) was born on December 29, 1905 in the city of Guayaquil, Ecuador. He studied art at the Guayas Philanthropic society of Guayaquil. As a caricaturist, he achieved much triumph doing editorial cartoons at “El Universo” (The Universe) – the major newspaper of Ecuador, where he worked for 36 years. After a brilliant career he took up residence in the United States, where for thirteen years, in semi-retirement, he painted hundreds of oil paintings. Montanola died in Burbank, California on January 9, 1994. A monotone street scene of a rainy day in Paris, sets the stage for this waist-up image of a well-dressed blonde woman depicted holding her parasol with the Eiffel Tower rising in the background.
