jungle hut painting

return to gallery

The thatched hut on stilts is the typical dwelling for Amazonian people throughout the region. This painting is reminiscent of the idealized pastoralism of early neo-classical impressionism, such as Constable but with a uniquely Amazonian subject. Hanging clothes remind us of the simple lifestyle led by the native people. The small enclosure beneath left side of the hut is where chickens and pigs are kept. The tree just in front of it appears to be papaya, while behind the hut to the right, tall leaves of banana plants point skyward. The artist is Mita D. Lozano P., dated October 12, 1996. The medium is gouache on Arches paper and the original size is 22 x 30 inches.
