Discovering Viceregal Latin American Treasures opens at Colnaghi London and New York in July
This summer, Colnaghi gallery presents a major survey of Latin American art from the Viceregal period, assembled in collaboration with Jaime Eguiguren, the world’s preeminent expert on viceregal art. Marking the first commercial exhibition of this scale ever to be staged, Discovering Viceregal Latin American Treasures brings together more than 100 paintings, sculptures, textiles, and objects from the 17th to 18th centuries, with select Pre-Columbian and Modern masterpieces, reflecting Colnaghi's commitment to supporting cross-category collecting.
The exhibition will be on view simultaneously at Colnaghi’s galleries in London and New York, and presented online in virtual reality tours, allowing viewers from around the world to examine the works in detail in both locations.
Open by appointment only.
