Latin American Art
The only major auction house with dedicated sales in Latin American art, Christie’s offers a comprehensive selection of 17th and 18th-century Spanish colonial painting alongside modern and contemporary masterpieces from the region. This season Christie’s is proud to present two exceptional oil paintings by the iconic, and rare to the market, Frida Kahlo. Additional highlights include Fernando Botero’s impressively large and festive painting of flamenco dancers, an evocative painting of an elephant by the late master Francisco Toledo from the William Louis-Dreyfus Foundation, a fresh to the market watercolor on canvas by Diego Rivera and an exceptional early work by Rufino Tamayo.
