Jack Rutberg Fine Arts in Los Angeles is presenting a formidable exhibition of works by the major Mexican 20th century artist and sculptor Francisco Zuniga (b. Costa Rica 1912 - d. Mexico 1998), opening on Saturday, September 29, and extending through Saturday, December 22, 2007. The exhibition, Francisco Zuniga: Woman as Icon, opens with a preview reception Saturday, September 29 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. Ariel Zuniga, the artist’s son and biographer, will be in attendance.
This ambitious exhibition of Zuniga works features important sculpture, drawings and watercolors. Highlights include one of the few exceedingly rare sculptures in wood by the artist entitled Mother with Child at her Hip, 1982, offered for the first time. Also included is one of Zuniga’s classic works – a rare marble sculpture, and a larger-than-life-sized bronze, Juchiteca Sentada of 1974, in addition to nearly 30 masterful drawings and watercolors which affirm Zuniga’s recognition as one of the greatest draftsmen of the human figure.
Opening Reception: September 29, 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.
