Araceli (b. 1914, Guayaquil) is one of the eminent figures in the history of Ecuadorian art. Among women painters, she is clearly the most outstanding. She is known for her Geometric Abstract work and battles to introduce Abstractionism into an environment overwhelmingly characterized by social realism and Indigenist painting. IMPORTANT REFERENCE.
