Masterpieces of Hispanic Art
The tremendous diversity of today’s Hispanic art makes it challenging to define but is explained by the amazing richness of its culture and its artistic tradition. Today’s auction celebrates the work of remarkable Hispanic artists working in numerous mediums in the past century. Among today’s artists are: Pablo Picasso A Spanish painter who is widely acknowledged to be the most important artist of the 20th century. He experimented with a wide range of styles and themes in his long career, most notably inspiring 'Cubism'. Fernando Botero Colombian artist Fernando Botero’s signature style, also known as "Boterismo", depicts people and figures in large, exaggerated volume, which can represent political criticism or humor, depending on the piece. He is considered the most recognized and quoted living artist from Latin America, and he has achieved international recognition for his paintings, drawings and sculpture.
