A musician dressed in traditional costume serenades the agave in card number 23 of Marina Pallares' exclusive interpretation of Mexico's lotería. It is a unique version of the classic bingo game featuring traditional images. The loteria made its appearance in the second half of the 18th century, and it is still a favorite at schools, fairs, carnivals and festivals. "I grew up in Jalisco, known for the production of tequila from agave plants, and as a child I used to play lotería all the time. These two facts inspired me to create the 'Tequila Lotto' series," confides Pallares, who credits the influence of Leopoldo Méndez and José Guadalupe Posada in her work. She masters aquafortis and aquatint etching techniques to create this eloquent composition.
Titled "El músico" in Spanish
"A gift for my husband.."
I just love the Tequila Lotto series. This was a gift for my bass player husband and has a place of honor in our music room along with El Mariachi and El Diablito! They make a beautiful, bold display with contrasting black and white mats......I plan to continue collecting from this series....I am a Marina Pallares fan!
- I like the folk art aspect and the potential for collecting thematically
