Mexican Artist "Maya", Veranda with a View of Sta. Prisca, Taxco,
Peso Priced Item; Another view of the famous The Parroquia de Santa Prisca y San Sebastían, commonly known as the Church of Santa Prisca, is a colonial monument located in the city of Taxco de Alarcón, in the southern state of Guerrero, Mexico, built between 1751 and 1758. This work by Maya is the finest of the many we have to offer .. the view from the veranda of this home with the exceptional window guard makes this a very special Maya painting. Not much is known about this artist whose cryptic signature MAYA has been a source of confusion for years. There is a known painter Reynaldo Maya born in Xochimilco in 1911, it is my belief that his signature is R. Maya and that the MAYA signature that these paintings carry is a different artist. Both artists painted scenery around and in Taxco at about the same time period. This will continue to be an area of investigation for me because there clearly are two artists using Maya and the one's signed R. Maya, in my opinion, are not nearly the quality of the cryptic MAYA signed pieces. We have several listings on our webpage with just "MAYA" and one with R. MAYA. This measures 22" by 24". It is signed lower right. Oil on Board in a beautiful frame.
