Luvre est signée au crayon en bas à droite et est numérotée "29/275". Alfonso Meléndez Arana (19272005) was a Puerto Rican painter. Arana was born in New York City from Mexican father and Puerto Rican mother. At age six, Arana made his first picture and presented it to his mother. His father, a businessman, did not want his son to become an artist. This caused a major rift between father and son. As a young man, Arana studied art in Mexico at the Atelier de Jose Bardasano, at the Manhattan School of Arts in New York, the Académie Julian and L'Ecole des Beaux-Arts of Paris, and did post graduate work at the American University in Washington, D. As an artist, Arana became known for his style of almond-shaped, hollow yet expressive eyes in a face without a skull and with a slightly oversized body. He is also well known for his use of light, sophisticated and almost transparent colors. Arana himself defines his style as expressionism and mannerism. The artist once explained that his alive and expressive human figures do not have any skulls because they are receptacles of the active things in the world as is God, nature, life, whatever we want.  His works are often unsettling for the degree of expression shown by his silent figures. Most initiates to his style might find his paintings to be disturbing.
However, after an initial period, viewers of his paintings often find beauty within the figure's expressions. In 1986, he created the Fundación Francisco Arana, an organization dedicated to foster art in young people. Once a year, the Fundación gives an outstanding art student a scholarship to live and study in Paris.
Arana suffered Parkinson's disease for quite a few years and died of associated complications on November 18, 2005 in his house in Paris in the company of his wife Simone Christophe, and daughter Rosa Meléndez Ibarra. Bon état de conservation (voir photos).
