Our era’s increasing embrace of, and demand for, Modern Latin American art has inspired LAMA to create a special section of more than 50 Latin American works for Sunday’s auction. Devoted to paintings, drawings, prints, and sculpture by Latin American modernists including Pedro Coronel, Francisco Zúñiga, and Felipe Castañeda, this exquisite sampling offers the collector a unique opportunity to acquire works from the Bernard and Edith Lewin Collection of Mexican Art being sold by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) to benefit future acquisitions, as well as items from the Estate of Ruth and Dalzell Hatfield.
