In the first half of the 20th century, Uruguayan artists embraced the idea of promoting native subjects. Like the Hudson River school in the United States, it was a way for Uruguayan artists to celebrating their native land and elevate public awareness of the validity of native subjects as fine art. Figari is perhaps the most famous early twentieth century painters who specialized in native subjects.
