On a final and timely note the anniversary auction features an important sculpture by Pablo Serrano (Spanish, 1908-1985) depicting St. Junipero Serra. A mid-century modern bronze, this monumental work depicts the saint in his hooded Franciscan cassock with bare feet and arms outstretched in an embracing gesture. This sculpture was featured in the courtyard of the Spanish International Pavilion of the New York World’s Fair of 1964-65. During the 18th century, Franciscan friar Junipero Serra Ferrer established a chain of missions from the Baja Peninsula northward through what is now California, extending the Spanish colonies into North America. In addition to being a Spanish national hero, he was canonized by Pope Francis on Sept. 23 in Washington, D.C., during his historic visit to the United States.
