  The paintings of Lorenzo Gonzalez Chavajay are at the same time the most naive and most modern of all the Tz'utuhil Maya artists. Like Grandma Moses he took up painting late in life, after he retired. Unfortunately in 1996, just as he had reached the height of his powers as an artist, he died. I recently went through my storage space, and found nine paintings by Lorenzo which I am offering for the first time.

Please note: When Lorenzo painted he often left very little margin for stretching the painting. As a result they need to have special stretchers built (rather than stock stretchers I buy for the other artists) and be very carefully stretched so that important details at the edges are not lost. I don't trust that all commercial framers will be sensitive to Lorenzo's vision, so I am only selling his paintings stretched. About half of the paintings are already stretched, but the others will have to have special stretchers made. This may take a longer time to get this done for his paintings than for the other artists. The dimensions, therefore, may vary slightly from the dimensions given.
