This original serigraph is titled “Tomando Agua” which translates as “drinking water”. It’s #9 in a very limited edition of only 30 printed in 1979. The colors are vivid and include metallic inks in gold and blue. The image size is 13.25×9.25” and the thick stock measures 16.75×12.75”. Numbered, titled and signed in pencil. Amado Pena was born in 1943 and his art focuses on Hispanic and Native American figures and has been described as capturing the essence of the Southwest in his own bold, unusual and distinctive style.
Pena, a Mestizo of Mexican and Yaqui Indian descent, was raised in Laredo, Texas. He earned B.A. and M.A. degrees at Texas A & I University in Kingsville, Texas. His work can be seen at many museums and universities, including the National Museum of American Art, the New Mexico Fine Art Museum, The University of Texas Benson Latin-American Collection in Austin and the Whitney Museum of San Antonio. Pena remains highly collected and this limited serigraph is a rare work. There are a couple of minor areas of damage, with a small scrape in the bottom left corner and a couple of light streaks caused during moving or storage. The scrape is pretty apparent but the streaks are not visible unless closely scrutinized. Considering the rare nature of this piece, the damage is completely minimal. Free shipping for this item.
