    Hi all
    I found these today at a local thrift store. Googling the artist's name R Muzio Diaz didn't show me anything but there was a R Diaz. Does anyone know who the artist is?
    Are these miniature paintings - not counting the frames? The artwork itself measures 4" x just over 3"
    Thanks, as always!

    I think identifying your artist going to be a bit of a challenge. 1970s-ish from frames. And Latin American, not Spanish. Muzio's originally an Italian surname so one would automatically think Argentina but apparently there are Muzios in Chile, Peru, Venezuela...

    BTW, they're drawings not paintings

    They do appear to be pen & ink.

    If the artist isn't known he should be. I really like them.

    I would say they are small enough to be considered miniature.
