Morton Subastas announces its Traditional Christmas Sale
Anton Batsch (Germany, 19th century), Drop Leaf Table. German Renaissance Revival style. Carved wood and stone, with red, black and golden ink details. Est: $34,300 - $49,000 USD.

MEXICO CITY.- Morton Subastas, one of the top auction houses in Latin America, announces its Traditional Christmas Sale. For this special event, one of the last auctions of a remarkable year, Morton has gathered quite a unique selection of pieces from many countries around the world; comprising lots from the 18th century to the early 20th century. Among the pieces to be auctioned there will be high skilled paintings from European masters, such as German traveler artists August Löhr and Paul Fischer. Magnificent landscapes that provide impressive views of the American continent, its locations and customs.

Mexican 19th century masters are well represented though the unique talent of German Gedovious, Felix Parra and Manuel Ocaranza, rather extraordinary painters that were influenced by Symbolism and Decadentism. Also a varied selection of religious paintings and sculptures, from the late viceregal period and the early decades of the Mexican nation.

And finally, one of the crown jewels of the sale, a breathtaking 19th century German wing table by Anton Basch. A Northern European Renaissance revival style piece which provides quite a unique experience to everyone that has admired it. The table has an extraordinary carved and inked square cover, decorated with proverbs, portraits and domestic scenes in the interior of splendid cartouches. In its center, surrounding an allegory of time, one may read a verse inscription by well-known poet Friedrich Schiller, a fragment of the sublime poem “Time´s pace is threefold” (Dierifach ist der Schritt der Zeit). Surely a highlight of the sale, not only for its masterful reliefs, but also for its unparalleled intellectual composition.

The auction will be held at Morton Subastas salesroom on December 07 in Mexico City. It can also be accessed on
