In 1958 my parents bough this old painting at the famous flea market in Mexico, Lagunilla and yesterday it came apart and fell on the floor in my sister's condo in Uppsala. Ouch that hurts!
It made me think of that time in Mexico and of the small collection of paintings we have from there. I think the flea market find was the first one. Later my parents met Waldemar Sjölander, a Swedish artist who made his home and reputation mostly in the lively arts' scene in the vibrant capital of Mexico City. Over the years they bought several of his works.
I would be very curious to find out if anyone has a painting like the old one pictured here. Would it have been painted in Mexico, or brought over from Europe? My parents also visited San Miguel de Allende and picked up a couple of paintings here. In my the digital Lucia image, my sister is the model.
