Woman with Flower Box

Emilo Pettoruti

Argentina 1882-1972
gouache on paper - 19 x 14 + frame

Renowned for his Cubist work which caused a scandal when it first appeared, the artist’s work he had a more lyrical side which is evident in this painting. His work is collected world wide and is in many museums.  He was accepted to La Palma Academy of Fine Arts at the age of 14. In 1917, granted a travel fellowship, he studied in Italy and was inspired by Futurism and Modernism while studying Renaissance art. As his fame spread, he worked and exhibited in San Francisco for a period. In 1952, in reaction to Peron, he returned to Europe to paint.

Some professional restoration along the bottom and a small area on the left. The painting was examined and accepted as authentic by Christie’s in 2011
