Art of Latin America in our auction room
The context, both geographical, historical and cultural, of an artist is crucial in the development of his creative proposal, his processes and language are a reflection of the land that has seen him born or develop professionally. In Latin America we have the great fortune of having a wealth without equal and our Latin American Art Auction next Thursday, November 15, shares that same diversity, the selection includes works from creators from Mexico to Chile, through Guatemala, Cuba, Puerto Rico , Nicaragua, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru and Argentina, whose cosmogony and culture we put at your disposal.
Mexico is represented by emblematic authors such as Diego Rivera, Dr. Atl, and José María Velasco, but also by important artists who made our country, their homeland, including an impressive oil painting by Leonora Carrington; from the Chilean end, a drawing of the mysterious Roberto Matta.
In Latin America, countries with a mystical tradition can not be absent, Cuba has permeated its ideology and landscape in its artists: mystics like José Bedia, Wifredo Lam and Manuel Mendive, transport us through their images of magic to the realities that inhabited , but we can also get lost in its beautiful landscapes through the brushes of René Martín and Carlos Ríos.
Colombian art has been in vogue in the international market thanks to the relevance acquired by the work of Fernando Botero, author who adorns the cover with a splendid oil, but of which we also have a preparatory drawing finely worked on both sides of the paper . In contrast, the sculptures by Edgar Negret, speak of the interest of the artists of this country for the abstraction and an art that speaks of the industrial age that we live.
Argentina cosmopolitan, in the eyes of comedians and critics Antonio Berni and Antonio Seguí, but also the abstract Argentina of the paintings of Kazuya Sakai and Juan Melé.
It would be difficult to continue listing the works that we consider the best in this auction, so we invite you to consult the catalog that is already available on our website and for sale at our facilities; In it you will find a careful selection that we hope you enjoy.
