Description:
René Portocarrero (1912-1985) Sin título (Ángel) signed and dated 'PORTOCARRERO/ 1943' (lower left) watercolor on paper 11 7/8 x 16 1/2 in (30.3 x 42 cm) Painted in 1943 Footnotes Provenance Julien and Jean Levy, New York; associated estate sale ('Tribute to Julien Levy: Works from the Julien and Jean Levy Collection'), Tajan, Paris, 5 - 7 October 2004, lot 289. Acquired at the above sale by the present owner. Exhibited San Francisco, San Francisco Museum of Art, Cuban Painting Today , 9 October - 4 November 1945, no. 1260.45. René Portocarrero was one of Cuba's most celebrated painters and muralists. Born in Havana, he trained first at the conservative San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts abandoning traditional studies to make his own discoveries. He is therefore considered (and indeed considered himself) a largely self-taught artist who drew on the modernist developments coming from both Europe and Central America in the 1930s and 40s and infused them with his own particular Cuban lyricism. His work reached maturity in the early 1940s with a particular emphasis on expressive draughtsmanship. The subject of the female figure is central to his oeuvre , and often represents the city of Havana itself, taking a cue from the 1634 weathervane in the form of a woman at the top of the Castillo de la Real Fuerza known as La Giraldilla or La Habana. Many of his works show the decorative glamour, Baroque architecture and elegant interiors of the El Cerro neighborhood where the artist grew up. The 1940s was a productive time for the artist. He traveled to Europe, Haiti and the United States, and took part in the 1944 Museum of Modern Art exhibition in New York. Significantly, he had his first one-man show in New York at the Julian Levy Gallery in 1945: lots 162 and 163 in the present sale were retained by Levy for his personal collection, and attest to the great interest the legendary dealer had in the artist's work. Paintings and drawings by Portocarrero are in the collections of the Museum of Modern, Art New York, the National Gallery of Canada, the Museum of Fine Art, Houston, and in public collections throughout Central and South America.
