John Moran Auctioneers Presents Fine Art, Jewelry, and Collectibles From South of the BorderAug 23, 2022 13:00 EDT
Though she would one day turn her skills exclusively to silver jewelry and religious figures, artist Matilde Poulat originally studied painting at the Academy of San Carlos in Mexico City. After the Mexican Revolution in the 1910s, Poulat and many Mexican artists were searching for a new, more authentic aesthetic, rejecting European subjects and turning instead to pre-conquest native work of the Mexican pueblos. Her chosen motifs reflect those native artisans, as well as the whimsy of contemporary Mexican folk art. Several of Poulat’s pieces can be found in the Made in Mexico Auction, on offer from John Moran Auctioneers.
Other items in the sale include fine art, such as paintings by Ricardo Martínez de Hoyos and Millard Owen Sheets, sculpture by Felipe Castaneda and Sergio Bustamante, pottery by Ismael Flores and Cesar Dominguez, and more. The auction is rounded out with assorted lots such as a Pesa “Nupical” silver flatware service, a South American polychrome rocking horse, several groups of folk art animals and pottery, and more.
