Jorge Eielson 1924–2006

Jorge Eielson often described himself as belonging to four cultures: Spanish, Italian, Swedish and Nazca. Born in Lima to a Peruvian mother and Scandinavian father, Eielson exhibited multidisciplinary artistic tendencies early on; he played the piano, wrote poetry and drew feverishly. At the end of his secondary school studies, Eielson met anthropologist and writer, José María Arguedas. Recognizing his young student’s talent, Arguedas introduced him to the artistic and literary circles in Peru and exposed him to ancient Peruvian history, a subject that was largely unknown to Eielson as a result of his colonial education.
