Eduardo Guerrero was born in 1923 in Ceuta, Spain. Deceased Naive artist.

Eduardo Guerrero was born in 1923 in Ceuta, Spain, where he studied in the School of Arts from 1935 to 1937.  From 1940 to 1942 he painted with the professor Miguel Bernardini, and from 1950 to 1951 with master painter Martin Ocana.  In 1949 Guerrero was nominated for the Order of the Cherifiana of the Mehdauia, an artists’ society in Spanish Morrocco, and in 1969 was also made a member of the “international Academy of St. Rita for Art, Culture, and Science in Torino, Italy.  In 1971 he was awarded a trophy by the Provincial Administration of Savona. Guerrero paid great attention to details, yet used an amazing mixture of light and color to translate the essence of the things which surround him.  He was mainly a landscape artist, although he had done many still lives and compositions using figures as well.  His chief influences were the great French masters of the 1800s which were a result of the 10 years he lived in Montmartre in Paris.  From there he moved to Italy where he depicted scenes from the local countryside.  These included the typical architecture of Liguria, small alleyways in the town where he lived, and everyday village life.  He also recorded the lives of the fishermen in this part of the country and a way of life which has largely disappeared today.   Eventually Guerrero moved to the USA with his family. Guerrero died in the 1990’s.
