Large vintage painting on wood attributed to Grand Master Jorge Wilmot
23 1/2” H x 35 1/2” W
Delightful painting on wood attributed to Jorge Wilmot. Imagery includes flora and fauna amidst town buildings. In good condition with signs of wear commensurate with age. There is some craquelure on some of the surface areas and paint loss along the edges. What appears to be discoloration on upper part of painting is actually glare from the light. A wonderful collectible that displays beautifully. See photos.
Jorge Wilmot was born in Monterrey, Nuevo León, in 1928. He studied at the Escuela de Artes Plásticas in the Academy of San Carlos in the early 1950s and then at the Instituto Franco-Italiano in Paris in 1953. He also worked Swedish ceramicist Limberg Koge Londgren. Wilmot was one of the most distinguished artisans of Mexico and has been credited with introducing stoneware and other high fire techniques to the country. His work is known for its more austere, Oriental-inspired designs blended with Mexican motifs. He has exhibited in Mexico and abroad and has trained and influenced generations of ceramicists at the school he established in Tonalá, Jalisco. Jorge Wilmot died January 12, 2012 in Tonala, Mexico, at the age of 83 years.
