Born in Durango, Mexico, Gomez was an artist of the Old West, focusing on nostalgic depictions of cowboys, Indians, and the landscape. He was a pupil of his father, a famous Mexican portrait painter, who moved his family to Northern Arizona in 1918. There, in the solitude of the untamed country, Marco rode and played with Indian children and learned about their diverse culture. He studied at Chouinard’s Art Center in Los Angeles.
