Painting, Tony Da (1940-2008)

Framed gouache painting by Tony Da (1940-2008) depicting a peacock type bird with brightly colored geometric accents on a turquoise ground. Signed and dated lower right, "T. Da  "88". Bears Trident Gallery, Sanibel, Fl label verso. Dimensions: (sight) 13.5"h x 16.5"w; (overall) 20.12"h x 22.25"w. Tony Da is part of a ground breaking family of potters in San Ildefonso Pueblo. His grandparents, Maria and Julian Martinez, were the first to change from functional polychrome pottery to black on black works of art around 1925. His father, Papovi Da, started creating large polychrome pieces and occasionally using inlay turquoise. Tony was initially trained in both pottery and jewelry making. He has an extensive use of inlay turquoise, wrought silver and shell beads in his pottery pieces and in creating "modern" pieces as well as painting. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $50.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance.
