Latin American Master Modern Artists

The work is diverse in medium, subject and genre. It is colorful, powerful, and relevant to today’s aesthetics and politics. Traveling around the world for business and pleasure, they delighted in meeting and supporting emerging artists during the 1960’s and 1970’s.
The exhibits includes works of artists from eight countries including Nina & Romeo Tabuena and Leticia Tarrago from Mexico; Luis Arias Vera and Jose Milner Cajahuaringa from Peru; from Puerto Rico’s Angel Botello; Brazil’s Aldemir Martins and Juan Manuel Sanchez from Argentina.
“We are very thankful with the Moore family for sharing this precious collection with La Peña’s Latin American community and the general public. This is an incredible opportunity to enjoy a number of Latin American modern artists who marked a new and fresh period in the Latin American art movement of the 60s,” says Laura Ruiz La Peña art curator.
