Just recently MaxSold auctioned off, “Nina Con Rebozo”, a beautiful piece by the famous Mexican Artist, Gustavo Montoya. Its final auction price? $10,250.

Montoya, born in Mexico City in 1905, began his journey as an artist at 15. He was a founding member of the “Liga de Escritores y Artistas Revolucionarios”, a Mexican association of revolutionary artists dedicated to propagate revolutionary mindset in their art and were especially against government art censorship. As well as the, “Salón de la Plástica Mexicana” an institution dedicated to expand and promote Mexican contemporary art. Montoya created this particular piece in 1982 after traveling Europe with his wife, finding, and perfecting his artistic style.

Montoya lived a beautiful life perusing his passion and sharing it with the world. Each painting he left with us is a piece of art history we cherish. We are so proud to have been able to encounter such an important artist’s work and share it with our MaxSold bidders.
