Guatemalan artist Carlos Mérida was one of Latin America’s pioneer Modernists. Mérida was one of the first artists to fuse Modern European paintings to Latin American themes, especially those related to Guatemala and Mexico. In his career spanning nearly seven decades, Mérida adopted three major painting styles: figurative, Surrealist, and geometric. The upcoming Morton Weekly sale, presented by Morton Subastas, offers a gouache piece from Mérida. This 1939 work shows biomorphic figures with elongated heads and abbreviated bodies.
Rufino Tamayo was a Mexican painter and printmaker known for his large-scale murals and folk motifs. Tamayo helped garner international attention for Mexican art. “Art is a means of expression that must be understood by everybody, everywhere,” Tamayo said. “It grows out of the earth, the textures of our lives, and our experience.” Featured in this sale is a lithograph by Tamayo. Titled Figure of the Olmec Culture, the work shows a woman wearing a headdress and some ornaments, sitting with her legs crossed. This sale also includes a selection of wine and spirits, carved ivory sculptures, and gold and diamond jewelry. Explore the full listings and register to bid online by visiting Bidsquare.
