Details

Getting a whiff of tequila, a cat sits too mischievously close to an open bottle, in card number 10 of Marina Pallares' exclusive interpretation of Mexico's lotería. It is a unique version of the classic bingo game featuring traditional images. The loteria made its appearance in the second half of the 18th century, and it is still a favorite at schools, fairs, carnivals and festivals. "I grew up in Jalisco, known for the production of tequila from agave plants, and as a child I used to play lotería all the time. These two facts inspired me to create the 'Tequila Lotto' series," confides Pallares, who credits the influence of Leopoldo Méndez and José Guadalupe Posada in her work. She masters aquafortis and aquatint etching techniques to create this eloquent composition.

"Wonderful print!"

I love the look of wood-block prints, and I love cats, so I zeroed in on this the minute I spotted it. It didn't disappoint. It''s a stylish and imaginative image that I continue to enjoy looking at, even after owning it for a couple of years. In fact, I donated a copy to a fundraiser I was chairing for a cat rescue, and it was an extremely popular silent auction item. You can't go wrong with Maria Pallares's art. (I recently bought another print and love it too.)

1 Testimonial for Marina Pallares

I love your prints, and I was so happy to find your print 'The Cat, Tequila Lotto'. My best friend loves cats and she loves Mexico (and she doesn't mind tequila, either). I bought her this print for her birthday and she absolutely loved it!
