Peter Gregorio de La Fuente (1959- ) eldest son of Carol Hurd, is a fourth generation painter in the family. His father was Rafael de la Fuente, a noted philosopher and writer who lived in Spain where Peter was born.
Peter grew up on the Hurd ranch in the Rio Ruidoso valley of New Mexico, then moved to Santa Fe in 1975. He worked as an art dealer through his teens-establishing the Wyeth Hurd Gallery in 1984. Like his grandfather, Peter Hurd, de La Fuente is drawn to the landscape, people, and history of New Mexico. He is the only artist in the family who continues the tradition of painting in the medium of egg tempera, which was introduced to the Wyeths in the early 1930's by Peter Hurd. In Santa Fe Michael, along with some of his family members, are represented by the Gerald Peters Gallery. They offer a wide selection of important American paintings of the 19th and 20th century.
