About the Artist:

Nicanor Plaza (Santiago, Chile, 1844 – Florence, Italy, 7 December 1918) was a sculptor and professor of Chilean art. Author of works inspired by the story.

In 1858 Plaza was admitted to the first generation of course of sculpture in the newly inaugurated Academy of Fine Arts of the Universidad de Chile, being a student of the French sculptor Augustus François who will inherit the post after his retirement.

Thanks to a recommendation from Benjamin Vicuna Mackenna, Plaza was made senior fellow of the government to continue his studies in France, center of art and culture; in 1863 he enrolled in Paris and becomes a student of François Jouffroy. Nine years later he returned to Chile (the year 1873) to take up the post of Director of the Academy of Fine Arts in Santiago.
