Overview

Tanya Capriles de Brillembourg has assembled one of the most superb collections of modern Latin American art in the world. Including masterworks by some of the most inventive artists of the 20th century, and also of our time, this volume offers beautiful illustrations accompanied by insightful essays that offer a context for the rarely exhibited works. The volume features paintings, wood constructions, and collages by Joaquín Torres-García, Francisco Matto, and Emilio Pettoruti, Argentinean and Uruguayan contributions to South America’s early avant-garde; works by Mexican artists Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Rufino Tamayo, and Francisco Toledo that reflect elements of cinema and politics, mysticism and modern design; and paintings by Venezuelan artist Armando Reverón that capture the singular effects of Caribbean light. The book also includes brief biographies of each of the nineteen artists represented, and an interview by Mari Carmen Ramírez with the collector exploring Capriles de Brillembourg’s unique philanthropic path.
