Alfredo ToledanoAlfredo Toledano
ALFREDO TOLEDANO passed 8th of November 2015. The greatest Dresden painted that traveled to the United States. Alfredo painted 36 of the cobalt blue vases see in this picture, painting with a Dresden design and hand painted gold. The vase is 36" tall. One of the vases is at the World Organization of China Painters Museum on display with some of his other works.
It took Toledano four days to paint each one of the vases. They are white and blue with detailed floral designs and an intricate gold outline.
Pat Dickerson, Museum Director stated Toledano is one of a few who still do the gold work. During a visit to Oklahoma City, Toledano said gold work is difficult, especially on a blue piece, because it appears black before it is fired.
However, he said he usually is happy with his finished project.
The artist has had decades to perfect his craft.
He was 13 when his father realized he had an artistic talent and enrolled him in a government school in Madrid, Spain.
Toledano honed his craft at the school for three years before opening his first studio in 1947.
He taught at the studio for 10 years before closing it to travel in Europe for a year.
Toledano moved to Brazil in 1958 and opened another studio, where he taught .
Also in 1958, Toledano began designing sets for a cinematographer. He did that work for about 20 years. One of his "large works of art was a commission to paint a wall mural in a Florida residence.
During the years, Toledano said he taught china painting to hundreds of people in at least 15 countries. He continued to teach until his death in 2015.
For many years, Alfredo’s travels brought him to Oklahoma where he taught at the WOCP Porcelain Museum in Oklahoma City Museum officials said the students in Oklahoma like Toledano. Some of them took his classes repeatedly.
