Francisco Amighetti (1907–1998) was a Costa Rican painter. In addition to his paintings, Amighetti also produced wood engravings, poetry and works of art criticism. He based his artwork on basic lifestyle in Costa Rica.[1]

He worked with Margarita Bertheau on a mural called Agriculture . The mural was for the presidential palace and has been called both pastoral and shocking as it shows the peasants farming but in the distance others run as a person is shot.[2]
