Antonio Pineda was a master silversmith who apprenticed with William Spratling. The maestro’s work evolved from an early post-Mexican Revolutionary style influenced by a variety of themes that surrounded him, including everything from pre-Colombian art to Art Deco to the sleek lines of abstraction. Works that were in demand at mid-century are today highly collectible were the subject of an exhibition titled “Silver Seduction: The Art of Mexican Modernist Antonio Pineda” on view at the University of California, Los Angeles’ (UCLA) Fowler Museum.
