The Forgotten Artist, Orbe
We met the artist Carlos Orbe 28 years ago in San Antonio de Ibarra. In his studio he had piles of his "l*ngo" portraits which were just sitting forgotten in a corner. We bought them all and continued to buy whatever Indigenous portraits he painted. He went blind and received an operation which restored his sight when in his 70 s and he continued to paint for hislast few years.
