Surrealist Figurative Bronze Signed Zuñiga and Dated, 1977

$2,80064% Off


Surrealist Figurative Bronze Signed Zuñiga and Dated, 1977 Offered for sale is a rare estate find of a gilt and patinated bronze of a surrealist standing figure with grotesque features. Signed Zuñiga on the patinated base and dated 1977. As we are very well acquainted with the work of Francisco Zuñiga, renowned Mexican artist recognized for his sculptures and paintings, and pastels of folkloric Mexican figures of large, ethnic women, the signature of this piece is so close to the original signature's of Zuniga's bronzes that we suspect that this might be an experimental piece done during his career. We were unable to find any comparable pieces but feel that this is so wonderful that we are comfortable pursing the possibilities. José Jesús Francisco Zúñiga Chavarría was a COSTA Rican-born Mexican artist, known both for his painting and his sculpture. Born December 26, 1912, San José, COSTA Rica died August 9, 1998, Tlalpan, Mexico.
