Art: 9.5" x 11.2" Frame: 14" x 16" Shipping in USA $ 60 - Born in Tigre, a northern suburb of Buenos Aires, his family moved to the city in 1936, and there Carpani finished his secondary school studies. He then started to study law, but soon abandoned it, and at the age of 20 he travelled to Paris, France, where he became first a model for artists and then an artist himself.
He returned to Buenos Aires in 1952 and studied a year with master Emilio Pettorutti. His first art exhibition took place in 1957. Together with other artists, he founded the Espartaco movement. Carpani was sympathetic with social causes, and his paintings are focused on topics like the unemployed, the working people and the poor, as well as nationalistic themes. They are strong, solid and clear-cut, often portraing determined men; this line of work is reflected in his illustrations of Argentina's national epic gauchesque poem, Martín Fierro.
