Lot Essay

Dos margaritas en un vaso is an outstanding example of Amelia Pelaez's later works. It comprehends several prominent aspects of Amelia's art; the inspiration of stained glass windows, the trend toward pure abstraction and her flat, intricate, intertwining patterns. Here, the artist demonstrates her understanding and mastery of the effects of tropical light on an interior. All unified by the thick black lines that outline and frame the color areas in a manner reminiscent of the lead in stained glass windows.
