Numael Pulido (20/21st Century)

Numael Pulido was born in Colombia, South America in 1939. He came to United States in 1958 to study painting, and enrolled at the Art Students’ League of New York City. He studied drawing with George Gross and painting with Frank Mason. While still a student, Pulido exhibited at the National Academy of Design, winning the S.J. Wallace prize. He then pursued a painting career in New York City, and was represented by the Bernard Black Gallery. In spite of early successes in New York, Pulido temporarily withdrew from the gallery world and moved to New Hampshire in the 1970s. Feeling the need to regain the freedom of execution so evident in the work of the Masters, he began to experiment in depth with the techniques of oil painting. By the mid 1980s Pulido had achieved his desired freedom of technique, and moved to England to resume his painting career. He exhibited at the Royal Academy of Portrait Painters in London, and was represented as a still life painter by John Noott at The Picton House Galleries in Worcestershire. In 1989 Pulido returned and settled permanently in the United States to paint and teach. Pulido’s portraits can be found in numerous private collections and prestigious institutions, including the American Antiquarian Society in Worcester, Massachusetts, Exeter Academy in Exeter, New Hampshire, Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, Franklin Pierce College in Rindge, New Hampshire, and Merrimack College in Andover, Massachusetts.
