MFA Boston's "Made in the Americas"

We were pleased to see that one of our alumni is included in the exhibition, an eighteenth-century Peruvian painting in an extraordinary shell encrusted frame, acquired from us by the Hispanic Society of America.  It appears in the center of this view of one corner of the exhibition.

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, has opened a superb exhibition “Made in the Americas; The New World Discovers Asia.”  It is a brilliant exploration of the international trade and influence of Asian works of art in the Colonial periods in  both North and South America – a story that could only be told through the decorative arts.

We were pleased to see that one of our alumni is included in the exhibition, an eighteenth-century Peruvian painting in an extraordinary shell encrusted frame, acquired from us by the Hispanic Society of America.  It appears in the center of this view of one corner of the exhibition.

The exhibition is on view until February 15, 2016.

“Made in the Americas” will then travel to Winterthur, where it can be seen from March 26, 2016 until January 8,  2017.

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.
