Utterly original glazes skillfully deployed mark the work of Harding Black "the Dean of Texas ceramics".

Ernest Fiene “Tabula Smaragdina” 1940 Surrealist oil on canvas SOLD P659

This is a surprising work from this important populist muralist and figurative painter of the American scene, though perhaps not unusual for an artist who experimented with so many styles.

Modernist Wild West Dude “The Gambler” c.1953 SOLD P655

Utterly wonderful conundrum of a painting. A flattened graphic schema sets off the finely modeled hands and somewhat sinister earless mask-like face, holes for eyes shaded by the wide brimmed white hat. Playfully, the artist has set one to wondering, is this man a killer, a planter, a sheriff? We threw the dice and called ...

F. Martinez Lais Mexican Girl Holding a Hen Oil On Canvas 1940s P654

Acquired from the original owner's estate, known to have been purchased in the forties, signed F. Martinez Lais. We think it's a knockout, a touch surrealist, slightly cartoonish and triumphantly Mexican-identified, modern-folkloric in the manner only a Mexican painter can pull off, this little peasant girl exerts a lot of power, seen from above, standing ...

Mexican Calendar Chromo “Leyenda de Mayab” 1940s AP307

Publisher: Galas De Mexico. A Mayan legend is portrayed, and we would love to know the story.

A few were commissioned ...
