19th C. Mexican Ex Voto - Prison Scene, ex-Historia

by ArtemisGallery LIVE

February 16, 2016, 8:00 AM PST

Erie , CO, USA

Estimated Price: $800 - $1,200

Description: Latin American, Mexico, ca. 1900 CE. An antique Mexican ex-voto with an intriguing narrative and composition, depicting a prison barracks the entrance guarded by an armed officer with two other officers marching inside the building marked "CUARTEL" (barracks). The streets and buildings are depicted in three point linear perspective; note how the building furthest in the background presents as jutting forward into space. Above and to the left floats a vision of the Holy Virgin of San Juan to whom this ex-voto is dedicated. The text below generally translates, "Francisco Belangues, having been incriminated, was put in a prison barracks where he prayed with all his heart to the Holy Virgin of San Juan for his freedom. This retablo is offered in gratitude for her promise on December 8, 1900." Size: 10" x 7-1/2" (25.4 cm x 19.1 cm).Ex-votos are narrative paintings indicative of healing or blessing popular in Mexican visual culture. This tradition was inspired by the Greeks and was brought to the New World by the Spaniards. These votive paintings were hung in a church or placed adjacent to an image in order to celebrate and give thanks for the recovery of the donor from an illness or dangerous situation. In essence, ex-votos represent the spiritual or physical gains received by the donor. These paintings include hand painted passages that relate the details of the cure or the rescue. Oftentimes, however, this commentary is replete with regional dialect and difficult to translate. Nevertheless, if you are familiar with the Spanish language, you will probably get the gyst of these anecdotal paintings. Provenance: Ex-Historia Antiques, James Caswell, Santa Monica, CA All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back. A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids. We ship worldwide and handle all shipping in-house for your convenience. #110011

Condition Report: Normal surface wear. Text is tricky to decipher but legible with effort.

Felix Marquez Villanueva, Zacatecas, May 22, 1051." This translation is attached on verso. The ex-voto is signed by "Pe Montallo" on the lower right. Size: 6-1/2" x 4-3/4" (16.5 x 12.1 cm).Ex-votos are narrative paintings indicative of healing or blessing popular in Mexican visual culture.

Oaxacan Rawhide and Bark Hoop / Frame Drum, ex-Historia

Mexican Tin Ex-Voto Devoted to Jesus Christ

by ArtemisGallery LIVE

February 16, 2016, 8:00 AM PST

Erie , CO, USA

Estimated Price: $250 - $350

Description: Latin America, Mexico, ca. 1942 CE. An antique Mexican ex-voto, hand painted on heavy gauge tin, depicting a gentleman, presumably the author of the text, one Faustimo Rodriguez. He prays before a vision of the crucified Jesus Christ on bended knee, holding a long lit candle. The text generally expresses gratitude to the image of Jesus Christ for granting a miracle in the Hospital of Salamanca. Size: 9.875" W x 7.25" H (25.1 cm x 18.4 cm)Ex-votos, are devotional paintings that bear a semblance to retablos, only they also include a written narrative offering thanks to a saint for coming to a family’s aid. The term is short for the Latin phrase ex voto suscepto meaning “from the vow made.” Oftentimes, gratitude is expressed for curing an ill child, expediting the recovery of an elderly family member, the safe return of a soldier, or the rescue of a victim from some horrific accident or crime. The petitioner dedicates a small painting with a brief written testimonial to a beloved patron saint for granting a miracle. These hand-written stories together with their expressive visual scenes can be quite touching and dramatic. Provenance: Ex-Historia Antiques, James Caswell, Santa Monica, CA All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

by Stephan Welz & Co

March 2, 2016, 10:00 AM CAT

Alphen Drive, South Africa

Estimated Price: R400 - R600

Description: Kentridge, W. LEXICON A.S.A.P, New York, 2011 cloth edition hardcover, no dust jacket as issued with a publisher's market to one edge and DVD, excellent condition "Lexicon" is a facsimile cloth edition of an antiquarian Latin-Greek dictionary, which has been embellished with black ink drawings of what might seem at first to be animal silhouettes. In reproducing the works, the artist mischievously pits the model of the flipbook against the fragility of the antiquarian origin, and flipping its pages animates Kentridge's lively, spiky drawings into a continuously morphing image that transforms from a cat to a coffee pot over the course of the book's 160 pages.
