Lot description
Capturing the essence of longing for an absent love, the artist portrays a young woman looking out from the painting in semi-profile. The turban she wears on her head is filled with gourds and avocados, representing ephemeral life. A stream of calla lilies curves around the right side of her neck. The work is presented in an ornate gilt wood frame with a hunter green linen mat.

Contemporary Honduran artist Julio Visquerra (b. 1945) is known for his figurative works which employ an incredibly vibrant palette and rich tones throughout the composition. Having explored various styles including Expressionism, Cubism, and Realism, Visquerra’s paintings investigate themes of decadence, power shifts, the female figure, as well as the process of life and death. Born in Las Flores Ranch, Honduras, Visquerra studied painting in the National School of Fine Arts and completed his studies in Spain. The artist has shown at a variety of venues throughout North and Central America as well as Europe, including the Organization of American States (OAS) in Washington, D.C., and the National Gallery in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
