Sotheby's unveils highlights from the Evening Sales of Modern & Contemporary Latin American Art

Sotheby?s announced their Evening Sales of Latin America: Modern Art and Latin America: Contemporary Art on 25 May in New York. Leading the Modern Art auction are Rufino Tamayo?s iconic The Bird Charmer (Encantador de pájaros) (estimate $3/5 million) and Diego Rivera?s arresting masterpiece, Retrato de la Actriz Matilde Palou (estimate $2/3 million). Both works appear in the market during a time of renewed interest in Mexican Modernism, with recent exhibitions at both the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Dallas Museum of Art in the US, the Grand Palais in Paris, and at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City.
