The La Viga road in Iztacalco runs from the center to the south side of Mexico City. The concrete road was built in place of the historic Canal de la Viga, a waterway once used for food supply, recreation, and navigation. In the early 20th century, the canal was ordered closed, and the present infrastructure was built on it. An anonymous 18th-century painting of the old canal is available in the upcoming auction of traditional Mexican antiques and Asian art, offered by Morton Subastas. It comes with a carved gilt wooden frame.
A Coromandel lacquer folding screen from the late 18th century is also available. It features 12 double-view panels in lacquered and enameled wood with chinoiserie decoration. The chinoiserie style was created in Europe to interpret and imitate Chinese and East Asian artistic traditions. The event offers over 200 lots.
