2019-2020 Lecture Series: Spanish Colonial Art
This lecture will take a historic look at how the market
for Spanish Colonial art has developed. Where were
we forty years ago and where are we today? What
and who has driven these changes? Topics will include
recent hits and misses at auction, increasing institutional
interest, museum exhibitions, curatorial positions and
scholarship. Issues specific to this field such as national
patrimony laws and the challenges of finding comparable
works for appraisals and valuations will all be discussed.

been instrumental in both the consignment and selling of
key works of Spanish Colonial art. She has had the privilege
paintings, but also enconchados, coqueras and polychrome
sculptures. When not researching, writing about, valuing or
assessing for clients the merits of Spanish Colonial art, she
is busy consigning and selling modern and contemporary
Latin American art both privately and at auction. She has
been quoted in the New York Times, Barron’s, The Peak
