  • Bernardo Rivero Arenazas was born in 1889 (some historians say 1886) in Callao, Peru and died in Lima in 1965. He is considered one of the greatest Peruvian painters of the early 20th century and one of the pioneers of Peruvian painting. The Law and Political Science Faculty of the Universidad de San Martín de Porres includes Rivero as part of the great masters of the Peruvian painted art and states that between 1890 and 1935 a generation of painters was born, distinguished for their great versatility in the aesthetic field. Gerald Hirschhorn, in his book Sebastián Salazar Bondy: Pasion por la Cultura, mentions that Rivero studied alongside the Peruvian master Daniel Hernandez Morillo in the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes de Lima. The school was inaugurated on April 15, 1919 and Rivero was one of the first students, together with Ricardo Flores, Jorge Vinatea Reynoso, Alejandro Gonzales (Apurimak), Julia Codesido, Carlos Quispe Asin and Elena Izcue, among others. Rivero's colleague Wenceslao Hinostroza once stated that "he [Rivero] painted for the painting" and knew how to keep his singular modesty even with the great success reached by his finished work. Rivero traveled to many cities in Perú and throughout the American continents. He specialized in landscapes, particularly his Lima surroundings, using color and feeling to create them. Alfonso Castrillon Vizcarra, director of the Institute of Museologic and Artistic Investigations of Ricardo Palma University and previously general director of the National System of Museums of the National Culture Institute of Peru, created an essay called: "Los Independientes: instancias y antagonismos en la plástica peruana de los años 37 al 47". Castrillon mentions that to promote the inauguration of the art gallery called "Primer Salon de los Independientes", two posters were made, one of which was from Rivero. Mirko Lauer, in his book Bodegón de bodegones, comida y artes visuales en el Perú mentions that Rivero preferred to paint chirimoyas and ripe avocados over the canvas. Rivero is mentioned in a book by Nanda Leonardini called El grabado en el Peru republicano: diccionario historico. The author states that Alejandro Gonzalez Trujillo, a painter known as Apurimak, was influenced by the personality and work of Rivero. (en)
