Note
"Colour lithograph on very thick paper, folding into original buff printed card covers (Very Good, map clean and bright with rich, thick resplendent colour; cover with repaired tears but no significant loss), 65.5 x 88.5 cm (25.5 x 35 inches). A highly attractive, Art Deco pictorial map of Spain’s Basque County, richly colour lithographed in an almost painterly style on very thick paper; surely one of the most exquisite decorative maps of the era. In this lavish pageant of Art Deco artistry, Spain’s Basque Country unfolds in resplendent colour. All towns, historical sites and cultural events are portrayed pictorially across a verdant landscape. In a charming twist, the entire scene is shown to be viewed by a group of tourists travelling in sedan (saloon) perched upon a mountain road. Gregorio Hombrados Oñativia (1902 - 1978) was a Basque professional painter who specialized in landscapes; his oils occasionally appear on the Spanish market. The present map is, however, his best-known work. References: Fundacion Sancho el Sabia – Memoria Digital Vasca (Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain): 209330. (Alex Johnson)
