The colors are deep and vibrant with no sign of fading. The etchings and frame are in perfect condition with no issues. Prestine condition and should be considered mint Circa 1972-1977.


 With scholarships for her talent, she traveled to Europe, studying in Warsaw, Poland with leading Polish graphic artists, and in Holland with a group of Dutch engravers. Her work has appeared throughtout the Americas and is now in several permanent collections in Europe and the United States.

About the Artist: Leticia Tarrago' born in Orizaba, Veracruz; is one of the most prominent visual artists from Mexico. Painter and engraver.  At the age of 14 she won first prize in the annual student competition staged by the National Institute of Fine Arts.  In 1957 at 17 Ms.Tarrago won first prize in KLM Airlines twelve- country competition "This is my country".  In 1967, Ms. Tarrago won the coveted award for engraving given by the National Institute of Fine Arts and presented personally by Mexico's Secretary of Education.  Crisp lines and fantasy figures transport us into a world of color and shapes. Educated in Mexico and Poland, former disciple of Silvia Santamaría and Dr. Atl, she worked in the Netherlands, Switzerland and the United States. Opting for surrealism, mixing everyday items concocting a magical world with fantastic animals and impossible architecture. Some have written that her work could be a comparison with that of Gabriel García Márquez: what the Colombian expressed through words, Leticia Tarrago' manifests in pictures.

This area is called the 9th Ward and is one of the areas that saw a lot of distruction during Katrina. This building was severely damaged and had been unused for years until we found it last summer.
