See condition report for details of wooden base.

Felipe Castañeda (Mexican, b. 1933) is a contemporary Mexican sculptor best known for his bronze, marble, and onyx figurations of female nudes. After attending La Esmeralda Painting and Sculpture Academy in Mexico City, Castañeda became an assistant to the acclaimed sculptor Francisco Zuñiga (Mexican, 1912-1998). Castañeda’s work has been influenced both by classical European sculpture and by pre-Columbian artifacts, with which he became familiar while working for Mexico City’s National Museum of Anthropology. He has exhibited internationally and has been commissioned to create public sculptures for several cities in Mexico as well as Palm Springs, CA. His work is represented in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA and the Museum of Art History, Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. He lives and works in Morelia, Mexico.
