Federico Castellon
Surrealist Nude Female Figure like Salvador Dali

1935

$15,000

About

This is an important work that is loaded with Surrealist iconographies. The shape of her hands is echoed in the shape of her hair. Tiny man and woman figures running on a vast empty desert landscape. A vertical pole and corresponding rectangular monolith suggest sexual intercourse. And nipples that are transformed into floral shapes etc. Yet most important, is the faceless nude figure itself. It seemingly grows out of the desert into monumental proportions. Her clothing has fallen and acts as a plinth on which the figure sits. Notice how Castellon echos the shape of the pubic area with the same shape of the V shape of the clothing. Federico Castellón was a Spanish American Surrealist artist and member of the National Academy "Surrealist Figure" 1935 is a very early example of Surrealism by an American artist even though it was done in Paris The artwork is signed, dating and inscribed Paris lower left. Elegantly framed under glassl
