Latin American art auction at Phillips

ARMANDO MORALES Four Bathers and a Dog signed and dated "Morales / 87" lower right oil on canvas 79 x 63 1/2 in. (200.7 x 161.3 cm) Painted in 1987.

The new auction season in Phillips will be featuring important artworks from Latin America that will go under the hammer on November 21, 2017. 

Phillips specializes in auction of 20th and 21st century artworks across the cultural capitals of the world like New York, London, Geneva and Hong Kong. The Head of Latin American Art of the company, Kaeli Deane, seemed especially excited as the auction will be another step forward to bridge the gap between Latin American art and contemporary art from other parts of the world.

Jorge Eielson’s study in minimalism and conceptualism titled “Quipus 30B” will be the centre of attraction of the auction. Carlos Cruz-Diez’s “Physichromie No. 558” from 1971 is a study of color affected by lighting that will induce audience participation in the exhibition during the auction. Zilia Sánchez’s “Topologías eróticas” which is a study of sexuality and gender is also expected to garner a lot of attention. The Latin American art auction is the perfect sequel to the Evening Sale of 20th Century & Contemporary Art scheduled for November 16, 2017. The two most important art pieces bearing testimony to the glorious art scene in Latin America – Carmen Herrera’s “Untitled” and Hélio Oiticica’s “P31 Parangolé, capa 24, Escrerbuto” – will be important inclusions in the planned auction.
