Jose Mensaque Sevilla
Vintage José Mensaque Sevilla Spain Tile Panel
A beautiful tile panel by Jose Mensaque of a village scene rendered in colorful glazes in the cuerda seca style. Titled in the lower left "Cuesta De San Cristobal" presumably after the painting by Jose Larrocha Gonzalez (1850-1933), see last image. The panel measures 16 1/4" tall and 10 3/4" wide. Each tile measures about 5 3/8" tall and 10 3/4" wide. The backs of the tiles are marked Vda De J Mensaque Sevilla Espana." Never installed the condition is excellent with only a few flaws.
Probably dating to the first half of the 20th Century this Spanish tile panel fits in with any Spanish Colonial design and rivals the quality of period Mexican panels of the time period.
