"El Angel de la Mariposas" by Hortensia Bueno
27.5" x 39.25"
Mexico City painter, Hortensia Bueno is one of our most popular artists. Her gouache on paper paintings are full of life and color. They exhibit the sensuality of women, and love of dance in bright colored dresses. Her inspiration reflects colors of the tropical Mexican coast and jungle. She mixes these women with mythical creatures like mermaids, angels and devils. Many times they are accompanied by dogs, cats, iguanas and crocodiles, birds and fish dancing the blues.
