Los ultimos celajes. [The last light.]
Etching, 90 x 125mm. 3½ x 5". Glued into mount; glue stains to corners.
A man in a sombrero-type hat harvesting crops with a sickle as dusk falls; two other men and an ox in the background. An atmospheric scene somewhere in central or South America. The Latin American artist Joaquin Macias is known to have lived in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Nicaragua, and to have visited Chile in 1951. In a hand written note discovered with a group of his etchings, he mentions a period of "30 years residence" in Britain. He seems to have etched most of his plates in the 1930s, 40s and 50s.
