An extraordinary Cubist Lacquered Wood Sculpture by Jesus Fuertes showcased at the prestigious 2000 ARTELENIUM EXHIBIT in Barcelona! An homage to Miro, the piece is marked "No 1/7 Limited," emphasizing the sculpture's exclusivity and rarity. This piece is collectible as one of only seven limited-edition sculptures ever created. The significance of this piece is further accentuated by its association with the esteemed ARTELENIUM EXHIBIT, where visionary artists such as Miro and Picasso exhibited their celebrated works. Born in Madrid,

Fuertes had the privilege of studying under the legendary Pablo Picasso, making him one of Picasso's last and most promising students. His introduction to Picasso came through his father, who moved in intellectual circles, providing young Fuertes with a unique opportunity to learn from a master. Fuertes' artistic journey was also influenced by the surrealism of Salvador Dali, adding an intriguing layer to his work. Picasso himself once remarked, "Fuertes is a genius," a testament to the immense talent that Jesus Fuertes possessed. Fuertes had a particular affinity for the color blue, which he skillfully incorporated into his works. His preferred subjects were women and cats, and his paintings beautifully captured the essence and mystique of these subjects. 

The piece has been authenticated by the artist's daughter.
