LINO ENEA SPILIMBERGO

 

Lino Enea Spilimbergo (12 August 1896 16 March 1964) was an Argentine artist and engraver, considered to be one of the country's most important painters.

He was born in Buenos Aires in 1896, the son of Italian immigrants, Antonio Enea Spilimbergo and María Giacoboni, and his full name was Lino Claro Honorio Enea Spilimbergo. His early years were spent in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Palermo. Whilst visiting his mother's relatives in northern Italy with his family he contracted pneumonia, which in later years caused him to suffer from asthma. Returning to Buenos Aires in 1902 he started his schooling, which ended in 1910, when he began working for the post office to support himself. From then on, until 1924, he kept this job in parallel with his painting. In 1917 he graduated from the Academia Nacional de Bellas Artes and in September of that year his father died.
