Francisco Zuniga (b. 1912 Costa Rica- d.1998 Mexico) is regarded as one of the most important artists of Latin America in the 20th Century. While his sculpture and drawings - primarily of indigenous women of Mexico - are widely celebrated, the political aspect of his works was initially viewed as provocative, as he dared to depict the indigenous women of Mexico as fundamentally heroic. According to the Mexican art historian Ida Rodriguez Prampolini, Zuniga was the most internationally collected artist of Mexico; nowhere is this more evident than in Southern California collections.
