Lot description
In this lot, Untitled (1956), Schendel paints oil generously onto the board, producing a distinctive thick texture; this is inherent to her still life, landscape and portrait paintings of the 1950s and early 1960s.

Mira Schendel is a highly acclaimed and internationally recognized Modern Latin American artist who creates subtle, sophisticated abstractions in muted hues and simplified shapes. This work measures 33.7 x 22 inches (85.6 x 55.9 cm), comes unframed and is in excellent condition.

Swiss born Mira Schendel (1919-1988) emigrated to Brazil soon after WWII where she began her art career in ceramics and painting.
