Latin American

The Latin American collection encompasses over 500 works from the 18th to 21st centuries. Early works include Spanish Colonial painting, furniture, and decorative arts. This category is particularly strong in early- and mid-20th century Mexican painting and prints. Contemporary works by artists born and/or working in Latin America are also found in this collecting area. Keep in mind that categories of art are fluid; use Advanced Search if you are looking for something specific.
