Puente del Arzobispo. Spain. Circa 1750
The pottery of Toledo's two main production centers, Talavera de la Reina and El Puente del Arzobispo have remained the uncontested gold standards for quality since production began more than a millennia ago. While period examples from either production center can still be sourced today, examples equaling the artistic merit of this 18th century pictorial 'jarro vinatero' from El Puente del Arzobispo rarely come to market.
The period repairs were done with honesty and integrity and the colorful palette is quite catching but the unsophisticated and unpretentious rendering of a quite pretentious Spanish military officer is the highlight. Folk art is defined by anonymous, and untrained authorship, produced in a style marked by flattened perspective, primary color and basic form. The painterly style represented in this handled pictorial jar transcends that definition. The 'outsider art' movement, characterized by painters living in elaborate fantasy worlds and extreme mental states, dovetails perfectly with the unconventional and idiosyncratic pictorial image represented on the face of this early jar.
