Description

    San Ildefonso Polychrome Pottery Jar by Ana Montoya
    Circa 1910
    Height 9 1/2 in. Width 11 in.

    This classic three-color olla features a globular body and a tall neck. It is painted with a frieze of scrolling hooks around the middle along with two friezes above, each of abstract feather forms, all on a cream slip, and a red underbody. Ana Montoya was the sister of Maria Martinez. Ana would work in concert with her husband, Crescencio Martinez. Writing of this artist's work, Jonathan Batkin of the Wheelwright Museum in Santa Fe states, "Anna apparently preferred a red rim after most other San Ildefonso potters had begun painting rims black. Her pots are well made. In fact, in many cases they are as well made as Maria's...I consider Ann's and Crescencio's pots to be every bit as important as Maria's and Julian's..."

    Provenance
    Parsons Fine Art, Taos, New Mexico.
