Sold, Thank You.
Original and rare work (pastel on paper framed under glass) by Timothy E. Stortz (American, Colorado, born 1952). This work is signed and dated lower right, and still bears a gallery label which gives the title of the work: "Canastas and Sombreros", and the date 1984. In excellent original condition. Gallery framed. 14" by 17" work alone, 22" by 25" in its frame.
Timothy Stortz joined Ramon Kelley and William Reese on a painting trip to Mexico in the early eighties. The result was a joint exhibition at the Frye Museum in Seattle--the Frye Museum still holds a number of paintings by these artists, including a Mexican market scene by Stortz very similar to this work.
