Carlos Maria Herrera

[Uruguay] (b 1875/d 1914)

"Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Herrera began his studies there under the instruction of Pedro Queirolo, later relocating to Buenos Aires for two years at the Círculo Estímulo de Bellas Artes. In 1897 he traveled for the first time to Europe, studying in Rome and in Spain with Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida. In 1902 he took his second and final trip to Europe. As a specialist in portraits, Herrera was popular among the high society of Montevideo , but he also painted Natural, Cultural and Historical Scenes of his Country..."
