Lot description
Julio Larraz (Cuban, born March 12, 1944) is a Contemporary Latin American painter best known for his realistic depictions of everyday life in the Caribbean. Larraz’s work include themes of still life maritime scenes, bullfights, political generals, and businessmen often alluding to the corruption of political and social power. Larraz’s style is influenced by traditional Spanish painters, Surrealists, such as Giorgio de Chirico (Italian, 1888–1978), and early Modern European painters, particularly Édouard Manet (French, 1832–1883). Here, the artist paints a simplified, yet skillfully rendered frying pay displayed on an elevated pedestal. This painting measures 48 x 48 inches, framed to larger dimensions and in excellent condition.

Born in Havana, he fled to the United States in 1961. In 1964, he moved to New York and began drawing political caricatures that were published by The New York Times and The Washington Post, among other newspapers. He learned painting techniques from several artists in New York, such as Burt Silverman (American, b.1928), and began painting full time in 1967. His work is included in collections around the world, such as The Museo de Monterrey in Mexico, The World Bank in Washington, D.C., and The Museo de Arte Moderno in Bogota, Colombia. He currently lives and works in Miami, Florida.
