Gustavo Montoya, a Mexican artist, painted numerous still lifes throughout his career. However, he is best known for paintings that depict children in traditional Mexican outfits. The children in the paintings are usually formally dressed and seated as the center focus of his work. Included in the upcoming Fine & Decorative Arts Monthly Online Auction, presented by Heritage Auctions, is a painting by Gustavo Montoya titled Ninas con Mandolina (Girls with Mandolin).
The auction also includes Ogden Minton Pleissner’s Summer Evening watercolor painting. In this piece, Pleissner portrays a fisherman’s subtle pull of the fishing rod right before he catches a fish. Such attention to detail is characteristic of his artistic style. Also available in this sale is an amethyst geode.
