Suenos Antiquos VI
Oil on canvas
Signed and dated on reverse
49-1/2 x 49 inches (125.7 x 124.5 cm)
Rafael Coronel's Suenos Antiquos VI is another startling example of his mastery of the chiaroscuro effect. His intense use of shading in this work allows him to bring the piece alive with the use of minimal color. Coronel has proven his ability to capture strife and commotion within a dreamlike scenario in this old dream scene completed in 1966. A graduate of the Escuela Nacional de Pintura y Escultura in Mexico City, he carried this theme of robed men and dark desperation through a series of paintings with great fanfare. Coronel has been recognized as a leader in the Latin American contemporary art community and his work is much sought after for his detail of the human form amidst quiet strife.
