A stunning enamel plaque on copper and mounted on a painted board by Miguel Pineda ca. 1970s / 1980s signed in the enamel MIGUEL PINEDA.
This is a very large example measuring: 20 1/2 inches x 17 inches - enamel 14 1/4 inches x 10 1/2 inches and weighing around 3.5kg
The original source for this image was taken from the fantastic wall murals at Teotihuacan and depicts Itztlacoliuhqui the Mayan god of frost. There is a label on the reverse describing the significance and is printed 'Esmaltes de Miguel Pineda'.
Miguel Pineda was introduced to enamelling by Maggie Howe who ran workshops in Mexico City. Pineda studied with her during the late 50s and 60s and afterwards developed his own style and techniques, specialising in cloisonné, champlevé, sgrafitto and painted enamel.
The condition of the enamel is really very good with no obvious chips or damage to the surface at all. Under very strong light I can make out a few minor surface marks in one small area, but they are almost indiscernible under normal conditions. The frame or backing board has the usual light scuffs, often found with these enamels, but no significant dents. However, the bottom edge is showing some rubbing and the right hand corner has has a small knock. Some light scuffing across the back too.
The asking price includes free shipping and insurance to any destination worldwide.
