Cuban Artists Showcased in Modern, Contemporary, and Latin American Online Sale
NEW YORK – Eleven works by three leading artists from the Cuban collective known as Los Diez Pintores Concretos (the Ten Concrete Painters) lead Bonhams Modern, Contemporary & Latin American Art Online Sale which runs from January 26 – February 4, 2021. The 150-lot auction offers a curated selection of work, not only by the most recognized and coveted artists of Modern, Contemporary, and Latin American art, but also by its rising stars.
Andrew Huber, Bonhams specialist in Post-War and Contemporary Art in New York said: "At Bonhams, we continually strive to feature the finest work created by sought-after artists from all backgrounds. Los Diez Pintores Concretos have been monumental in reshaping the narrative of art history worldwide; they are finally getting the well-deserved – and in my view long overdue - attention to their exceptional work. This reexamination has pulled back the curtain on other previously underrepresented artists from Latin America."
Los Diez Pintores Concretos was an avant-garde Cuban artist collective. It thrived from 1957 through 1961, focusing on Concretism or Concrete art, a movement within geometric abstraction that began in Latin America in the 1930s and came to prominence in the 1940s. The movement has recently gained international recognition; The Ten Concrete Painters were the subject of an exhibition at David Zwirner, in both the London and New York galleries.
Among the eleven works is Sin titulo by multidisciplinary Cuban artist Loló Soldevilla (Estimate: US$ 18,000 - 25,000) a founding member of the collective. Her work has been shown at some of the most prestigious galleries throughout Latin America and globally, including the recent and highly celebrated exhibition at Sean Kelly Gallery, New York.
Other highlights include five works from the internationally proclaimed and self-taught artist René Portocarrero, as well as works by Amelia Pelaez, Carlos Enriquez and Fidelio Ponce de León, members of modernist group La Vanguardía. During the first half of the 20th century, these artists introduced modernism to Cuba, while also emphasizing an idealized vision of patria. Emotional and enigmatic, vivid and vivacious, their works emphasize the universal themes of change, transformation, and death through a distinctive Cuban lens.
