Egas was an Ecuadorian artist, who was teaching at The New School from 1932 til his death in 1962. He was first the director of the Art Workshops, and later of the Art Department. His large painting, Ecuadorian Festival, painted in 1932 for the school is now in the lobby of the 66 Twelfth Street building of The New School.
