Brutalist Abstract Metal Figure of an Owl by Noted Mexican Artist M. Felguerez



This expressive metal plate sculpture by the late Mexican modernist Manuel Felguérez Barra is reminiscent of some of Picasso's imagery and also of some traditional African masks. The surface has an array of different colors and textures, from rusty to shiny, from smooth to rough adding great character to the overall impression. Manuel Felguerez: Manuel Felguérez Barra (1928-2020) was a Mexican abstract artist, part of the Generación de la Ruptura that broke with the muralist movement of Diego Rivera and others in the mid-20th century.
