About

A sweet and nieve painting of a young girl in traditional dress, portrayed with a pale yellow and green colours thickly applied with white paint in a lace pattern. The young girl in holding a flower. Agapito Labios (Mexican 1898-1996) "Carnaval de Ninas Mexicanas" signed to corner. 42 x 32cm. Born in Pachuca, Hidalgo, Mexico in 1898, Labios would go on to start his career in a most turbulent time in Mexico. From 1910 to 1920 the Mexican Revolution took place, which saw Francisco I. Madero, a wealthy land owner, Challenge Porfirio Díaz who had been in power for 35 years. Díaz won the fixed election which lead to an armed conflict which overthrew Díaz and a new election was held in 1911, which brought Madero to the presidency. Labios' active role in the Mexican Revolution landed him in jail. It was here that he started painting on his jail cell wall. His works were spotted by the mayor of Pachuca, who ordered Labios to teach his two daughters, spurring on Labios' career. Agapito went on to make a living out of his Folk Art figure paintings. The artist's work is defined by his highly stylized portraits, often with children as the subjects in formal dress, with typical Mexican backgrounds such as farming fields and or town squares. Labios sold his work in La Lagunilla Market, in Mexico City, on Sundays, gaining him popularity and success. This lead to Agapito opening his own shop in Mexico City, which his son took ownership of after Labios' death in 1996.
