Latin American Art: Christie’s Auctions “Treasured Masterpieces”

This season, Christie’s Latin American sale presents a spectacularly diverse collection of works ranging from the Colonial era to the present day.  Featured among evening and day sessions are Modern and Contemporary masterpieces – many of which are fresh to the auction market – by artists hailing from 14 countries across Latin America and the Caribbean.

Several museum-quality masterworks will be featured, including Leonora Carrington’s Surrealist sculpture, La cuna (The Cradle), Candido Portinari’s powerful and heroic Navio negreiro (1950), as well as Matta’s La révolte des contraires (1944), a work that exemplifies the artist’s sense of space as a dynamic force field in a perennial state of transformation.

The sale also features an outstanding selection of works in all media by celebrated artist Fernando Botero. Key highlights consist of one of the artist’s most iconic art historically-inspired paintings—The Arnolfini (after Van Eyck) (1997), several excellent examples of works that draw upon popular themes and traditions (Colombian Landscape (1986), The Street (1995) and Dancing Couple (1997)), and the impressive monumental bronze Reclining Woman.
