LACMA

Cabrera Casta pro final.jpg

We are pleased to announce the sale of a highly important painting by the Mexican master Miguel Cabrera to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. 

This lost work was one of two canvasses missing from Cabrera’s celebrated series of sixteen casta paintings.  It is undoubtedly the best preserved of the set and the only example still retaining its original scroll format. We are proud to have established its identity and honored to have represented the painting’s owner in securing its acquisition by the museum – a discovery described by the Los Angeles Times as “a major event in the art world.”

On View at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art
from April 10th, 2015
 

Our thanks and congratulations to LACMA, to curator Ilona Katzew, and to Christina Jones Janssen.
