From his remarkable series of Indigenous Tribes of Mexico, this serigraph depicts the Estado de Oaxaca, #15- Friques, by Carlos Merida, one of the most important 20th century artists in Latin America. Studying in Europe under the avant-garde modernists, he was further influenced by the revolution in Mexico, and the works of prominent muralists emerging in Mexico, including Rivera. He created series of indigenous costumes from both Guatemala and Mexico, and the images are clearly influenced by modernist design. This particular image is one of 1000, and depicts a typical huipil from Oaxaca. His sense of design and color are classic and have timeless appeal. This serigraph measures 17 5/8" by 13" and is printed on heavy paper. Condition is good, color bright, no scratches or stains, though paper is quite toned (darkened), likely due to non-acidic framing at some. See photos for color variation in paper....if matted at edge, the toning will be less evident, as the image is consistent in color. The price listed is due to the slight imperfection of the toning.
