Rare early 20th century hand made wax figure and tin nicho by Luis Hidalgo - signed and dated 1936 on the base.
Luis Hidalgo, who carried on the family tradition through the early 20th century, has works in the Museo de Arte in Patzcuaro, Morelia, San Luis Potosi and pieces in private collections in the United States. His work was more folk-style, his figures were often made by hand, rather than with a mold. He is credited as having inspired the famous Mexican poet, Carlos Pellicer, with one of his wax nativity scenes. In 1923 Hidalgo opened a studio at 48th Street and 5th Avenue in New York City where he created wax figure caricatures of famous personalities.
Dimensions: Nicho measures 14 inches horizontal x 12.5 inches vertical.
Condition: base with chips. Signature is partially obscured, although still legible.
