The purpose of Latinamericanarte.com, is creating an online art space or gallery, in which some emergent artists and some who are already consolidated, can offer their works. We hope to reach a market which, every day, is more receptive in the acquisition of art works as an investment, collection, or a simple decoration.
We pretend that this project it’s a complement to promote the book “Clonarte” and in the same way, to promote this online gallery and artists whom are participating in it.
Latin American Art has had many aspects. It was an easy acquisition art up to the year 1980, when Sotheby, a New York tender House and its competitor Christie, began to offer Latin American paintings to the international markets. In this moment, artists from North, Central, and South America became a plastic art boom.
Eight years after being worldwide Roberto Matta, Diego Rivera, Fernando Botero, and Wilfredo Lam’s works, reached really surprising figures. When Mary-Anne Martin, in 1990, acquired “Diego and Me”, a Frida Kahlo’s work, in a tender house, from this moment, Latin American Art has exceeded a million dollar amount and nowadays, it continues exceeding this amount, which is demonstrated with sales of tender houses in New York in the month of November, surpassing 34 million dollars.
Latin American Art characteristics are the subject matter, the bright colors, and it is a modest art, without any pretension. It has its origin in Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean and an artistic inheritance, which is the product of a mixture of European, African, and Native cultures.
