18th C. Spanish Colonial Painted Wood Angels

Lot 0119 Details

Description
Latin America, Spanish Colonial period, ca. 1750 CE. Two hand carved wood and polychromed cherubic figures depicting rosy-cheeked, wide-eyed angels that very much reflect the stylings of the Baroque to Rococo periods with their sensuous fleshy forms that gesture and seem to be fluttering (one with separately carved and attached gilded wings) in dance-like motions - as if they were angels emerging from a Peter Paul Rubens masterpiece - one signed "Enrique Alianz (?) Vega" on the back. These angels display intense emotion without restraint, representing the artistic production of an era that was all about drama, even (or especially) when depicting religious subjects. Size: winged angel measures 14.25" W x 19.625" H (36.2 cm x 49.8 cm)

Provenance: private Brustin Collection, California, USA

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.
