Ventosa Nouveau scarf
This fine limited-edition scarf reproduces an Art Nouveau ceramic charger by the Catalan artist, Enrique Luis Ventosa, in the collection of The Hispanic Society of America. Ventosa studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Barcelona. In 1897, he settled in Puebla de los Ángeles, the Mexican city celebrated for its ceramics popularly known as talavera poblana. Fascinated by the art form, Ventosa became a leading force behind its renewal. From 1920 to 1922, Ventosa worked at the Puebla workshop of Ysauro Uriarte, where he revived colonial designs and introduced new styles that reflected the current trends of the period.
