Amelia Pelaez(1896-1968)
Who is Amelia Pelaez?
Amelia Peláez del Casal (5 January 1896 – 8 April 1968) was an important Cuban painter of the Avant-garde generation.

Salón de Mayo, 1967. Sidewalk insert in front of Radiocentro CMQ Building by Amelia Peláez.

Amelia Peláez was born in 1896 in Yaguajay, in the former Cuban province of Las Villas (now Sancti Spíritus Province). She was the fifth born of eleven siblings in a family that was part of the Cuban-Creole middle class. Her father was a doctor, Manuel Pelaez y Laredo, and her mother, Maria del Carmen del Casal y Lastra, stayed at home with her children. Amelia's uncle was Julian del Casal, who was a poet and included her family in Cuba's intellectual circles.

In 1917, her family moved to Havana, to the La Víbora district, and this gave her the opportunity to enter the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes "San Alejandro" at the rather late age of 20 years (students at this academy usually start at 12–13 years of age). She was among Leopoldo Romañach's favourite students. In 1924 she graduated from San Alejandro, and exhibited her paintings for the first time, along with another Cuban female painter, María Pepa Lamarque, at the Association of Painters and Sculptors in Havana. Receiving a small government grant, she travelled to New York City in the Summer of 1924 and began six months of study at the Art Students' League. In 1927, after being awarded a larger grant, she began studying in France, while paying short visits to Spain, Italy, and other countries.


Pelaez moved to Paris, accompanied by Cuban writer Lydia Cabrera, after she received a grant from the government in order to pursue art. Both took painting and art history courses at École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. She also took drawing and art history courses at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière and the École du Louvre. In 1931 Pelaez enrolled, along with Cabrera, in Fernand Léger's Academie Contemporaine. She then began studying with Russian painter Alexandra Exter, whose friendship and classes in color theory and design were an important influence.

Galerie Zak hosted a solo-exhibition of her paintings in 1933, where she exhibited thirty-eight works. In that same year, she participated in the eleventh Salon des Tuileries and “was also included in an exhibition of illustrated manuscripts by the calligrapher Guido at the Galerie Myrbor”, in which she illustrated Sept Poemes of Leon Paul Fargue. In her years in Paris, her work was highly praised by French critics.


In 1934, following a showing at the Salon des Independants, Pelaez returned to live in her mother’s colonial-style house in Cuba. The Cuba Pelaez returned to was in a state of economic uncertainty and political unrest. Beginning in the late 1920s, Cuba was searching for a new art that would reflect the national identity. In response, Pelaez departed from earlier vanguard strategies and turned to new approaches that involved depictions of Afro-Cuban and guajiro (peasant) subjects, while representing them in the adoption of European modernism. According to Ingrid Williams Elliot, Pelaez’s vibrant colors as well as thick lines are derived from Spanish-colonial architecture “integrating domestic objects with architectural decorations”. Peláez uses "Baroque ornamentation in her use of domestic colonial interiors to engage and merge multiple histories and assorted styles -- past and present -- to arrive at a contemporary Cuban idiom.”

In 1935, Pelaez had a solo exhibition at a women’s club in Havana called the Lyceum, which helped gain exposure of her new modernist Cuban style.

During this time, in the mid-thirties, Peláez was experimenting with "patterns, shapes and geometric relationships of tablecloths and fruit dishes, laying the groundwork for the geometric constructions and rhythmic patterns that have been associated with her architectural ornamentation in her work in the forties”, it also shows her awareness of Cubism. Her signature still life paintings were praised for the use of native fruits and flora referencing her Cuban roots.

In 1935-1936, Pelaez focused much of her paintings and drawings to the use of ink and pencil. The treatment of these drawings differs than her previous oil works, by distorting and exaggerating the figure with "sinuous line and light shading" that reference Cubism and European Modernism.

Peláez received a prize in the National Exposition of Painters and Sculptors in 1938, and collaborated on several art magazines in Cuba, such as Orígenes, Nadie Parecía, and Espuela de Plata. In 1950 she opened a workshop at San Antonio de los Baños, a small city near Havana, where she dedicated herself, until 1962, to her favourite pastime of pottery. She sent her paintings to the São Paulo Art Biennial in 1951 and 1957, and participated in 1952's Venice Biennale. In 1958 she was a guest of honour and jury member at the First Inter-American Biennial of Painting and Printmaking in Mexico City,[2] although she pulled out of the raucous and controversial jury discussions based on what she reported to be “an openly Communist bias in the decisions.”[8] Aside from painting and pottery, she dedicated time to murals, located mainly at different schools in Cuba. Her most important works of this type are a ceramic mural at the Tribunal de Cuentas in Havana (1953) and the facade of the Habana Hilton hotel (1957).She had a hard time selling her paintings as a living artists—she and her paintings, later named Amelias, achieved fame much later in life.

Peláez died in Havana in 1968.


Amelia lived in her mother's house, which was a mix between a neoclassical design and a more traditional Cuban Creole architectural style house, for the rest of her years after her return to Havana, Cuba. Her house was a main source of inspiration after returning to a reclusive domestic lifestyle. The house was built in 1912, filled with colonial furniture of the baroque style. The house contained marble, crystal, wood, and ceramics in its interior. Amelia would also hang her paintings as decor.

Lot 76: AMELIA PELÁEZ (Cuba, 1896 - 1968). "Interior with still life", 1949. Mixed media on cardboard glued to canvas.

Auction Date: Jul 27, 2021

Estimate: €20,000 - €25,000

Description: AMELIA PELÁEZ (Cuba, 1896 - 1968). "Interior with still life", 1949. Mixed media on cardboard glued to canvas. Signed and dated in the lower right corner. Certificate attached. Measurements: 61 x 46 cm; 87 x 72 cm (frame). Amelia Peláez is recognized as the first and only female artist to emerge from Cuba's avant-garde generation. The work we are dealing with, a variegated composition made in 1949, year in which she traveled for the third time to Europe, corresponds to the series of still lifes that Peláez began in 1936. It is a canvas bathed in her unmistakable aesthetic, with representations of fruits and flowers arranged on a background inspired by the colonial architecture that so moved the artist. Amelia Pelaéz painted her most interesting works during her maturity. At first, her aesthetics were closely linked to the academy. In 1916 she began her studies at the Academy of San Alejandro and in 1921 she went to New York. She commented at first that the United States did not bring her anything, but there she got in touch with modernity, coming into contact with different, new and avant-garde art. Finally she returned to the Academy of San Alejandro to finish graduating in 1926 with honors, and from the hand of Romanach, that is to say, from the hand of the most academic art. He then traveled to Paris in 1927 and stayed there for seven years. She arrived with a state commission, in order to investigate the schools and find out how the art scene was constituted. During this period Amalia immersed herself in art, which for her was a renewal. She enrolled at the Louvre school, also in that classical environment, and in 1931 she entered a newly opened academy, the contemporary academy of Fernand Léger, where there was a teacher who was an artistic revelation for Amelia. Alejandra Exter (1882-1949) Russian painter and designer, who followed the ideas of constructivism and exerted a great influence on the formation of Amalia. Through her works of geometric character and superimpositions of planes. Amelia found in the Europe of the avant-garde not the purism of these, but something more postmodern, but still interested her because it was a whole world of suggestions to assimilate and create a new aesthetic. In an article she wrote in a Paris newspaper about Cuban painters, she said that they were interested in the great masters of the contemporary in order to create a revolution in Havana. Those returning to Cuba assimilated the classical tradition, but were inspired by the themes of their country, although they were also interested in Gauguin, and the art of the blacks. In Paris he assimilated what he was seeing and made paintings of this type, with a strong weight based on figuration and post-avant-gardism. He opted for geometric rigor and broke with conventional space, betting on a purely plastic vision, typical of the avant-garde. In 1934 he returned to Havana, in the midst of political change, when Batista was coming to power. He secluded himself in his studio and dedicated himself to shaping his definitive work. He eliminated his academic burdens belatedly. When the catharsis of arriving in her homeland took place, she began to produce her own language, since it was in Havana where she realized that she did not want to be a simple painter of the School of Paris, but a modern and avant-garde Cuban artist. She got in touch with Wilfredo Lam, who knew in depth the Afro-Cuban traditions after coming from Paris and she herself ends up finding her style, looking at the city of Havana. She went through the city, her childhood memories, the craftsmanship, the roots, the stained glass windows, the latticework. In short, everything that defines the city of Havana as a chromatic city....

Auction Date: Apr 22, 2021

Estimate: $30,000 - $30,100

Description: Amelia Peláez del Casal (5 January 1896 – 8 April 1968) was an important Cuban painter of the Avant-garde generation. Like Frida Kahlo, she is so revered that her paintings are called Amelias, her first name only. In the 1940s she developed her signature cubist style, where her compositions focused on the visual examination of Cuba’s traditional colonial architectural elements -- the house, the garden, the neighborhood and the city. Her free flowing thick black lines, which outline areas of intense color, recall Cuba’s baroque architecture. They can be seen in her Still life, which she donated to the city of Florence in 1966. In 1931-1934, Amelia studied color dynamics and design with Russian constructionist and co-founder of the Art Deco Movement, Aleksandra Exster. Throughout the course of her career, Peláez was a favorite of Alfred H. Barr, founding director of New York’s Museum of Modern Art, who recognized Amelia as a pioneer of Cuba’s Primera Avantguardia and purchased several of her works for the museum’s permanent collection. Amelia Peláez’s Still life was restored by AWA in 2016 and exhibited at Florence's Twentieth-century Museum. This piece will ship exactly as photographed in Excellent Condition.
