Provenance: From the estate of Estela Ogazon Sanchez, wife of Jaled Muyaes. A Letter of Authenticity (LOA) from the Artist’s daughter, Karima Muyaes, accompanies this lot. Comment(s): Probably a study for an unfinished painting. A listed artist, Jaled Muyaes signed his work "Kena," "S. Kena," "Silvestre Kena," "Silvestre," or, if initialed, "K." or "S.K." Works by Muyaes, the noted Mexican painter and sculptor, rarely appear on the market. Born in Chile as Khaled Mujaes Morales, he moved to Mexico City as a young man and became an integral part of the intellectual circle there (e.g., he was intimately acquainted with the great Chilean poet Pablo Neruda during Neruda's Mexico City years). His parents were David Suleiman Mujaes (Lebanese), and Emma Morales Gajardo (Chilean). Image copyright © The Estate of Jaled Muyaes. [23462-2-400]
