Mexican Art Deco Style Figurative Mural
Our beautiful lacquered composition on wooden panels in the Mexican Muralist Art Deco style depicts two young men hauling water jugs from a nearby well, standing beside a wall with foliage above including palm trees and agave, with teepee (tipi) style tents in the background. Set within a wooden frame with metallic finish measuring 68 by 68 in (173 by 173 cm). Apparently unsigned. It's colors, graphic and figurative styles are reminiscent of the works of some of the leading Mexican muralists, such as Miguel Covarrubias, Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros. Purchased by our client from the Lorin Marsh showroom in the D&D building in Manhattan in 2007 for $16,000.
In good condition, with an expected degree of crazing, very tiny chip losses at the edges of some panels (only noticeable upon very close inspection), plus scuffs, nicks and scratches to the lacquered surface and frame. Please note our closeups of the frame were taken while the piece was covered in a layer of plastic for protection during shipping.
