HERES A SIGNED ORIGINAL VINTAGE 1960S-1980S MODERN ENAMEL-ON-COPPER PLAQUE BY MEXICAN ARTIST DOMINGO BLOCK DISPLAYING A PSYCHEDELIC CELESTIAL ABSTRACTION COMPRISED OF A GREEN, WHITE, AND BLUE MOON OR PLANETARY BODY SURROUNDED BY OF EITHER SOLAR FLARES OR THE DUST & ION TAILS OF A MULTI-COLORED COMET! The enamel-on-copper plaque itself measures eight inches (8) in height by five and one half inches (5 1/2) in width. The overall dimensions of the wooden pine frame are approximately twelve and one half inches (12 ½) in height, ten inches (10) in width, by just under two inches (2) in depth. Domingo Block employed an extensive palette of enamel colors to create his psychedelic abstraction, including lime green, orange-red, various shades of blue, yellow, white, purple, black, and green-blue. The abstraction has the appearance of being a celestial body in which Block created a central white, dark blue, and green-blue enameled moon set into a black enameled sky filled with extremely small purplish stars.The moon is surrounded by the multi-colored dust and ion tails of a comet. But this is just one interpretation. The enamel plaque is mounted into a wooden pine frame, which may or may not be original to the plaque. Signed Block in the bottom right corner. The signature is made up of small silver wires, similar to silver wires used in cloisonné enameling.
Condition: The enamel plaque is in excellent and clean condition absolutely beautiful! The wooden pine frame has a few small markings and scuffs but generally is in very good and clean condition. Overall, this is a beautiful example of Domingo Blocks enamel art!
