Xavier Esqueda is a self-taught Postwar artist who often explored the principle of perspective and American Pop Art in his works. The upcoming auction, presented by Morton Subastas, offers an acrylic on canvas titled The Roof of the Architect by Esqueda. Another Mexican artist featured in the event is Héctor De Anda, who considers memory to be an important theme in his work. He often experiments with different materials and techniques, transforming them into a plastic form. Spina di Pesce, a sculpture by De Anda, is a notable piece in the auction. This fishbone sculpture is made of 33 onyx carvings on a metal base.
Also showcased is a mask from the 1979 Open Mind and Empty Head series by Mathias Goeritz. He was a leading artist who introduced Modern art and emotional architecture in Latin America. Inspired by pre-Hispanic clay sculptures, the offered bronze mask shows the artist’s early Minimalist style. A lithograph by Joan Miró and a bronze sculpture by Enrique Jolly are also featured. The auction house’s online-only weekly auction offers 300 lots that also include antique furniture, jewelry, wines and spirits, Persian rugs, and books. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
