    Masterworks by Monet, Picasso & More to Highlight Sotheby’s Evening Sale of Impressionist & Modern Art
    14.05.2019

TWO LARGE-SCALE MASTERPIECES OF LATIN AMERICAN ART MAKE THEIR AUCTION DEBUT
The outstanding selection of Latin American Art on offer this May is led by two magnificent pieces by Rufino Tamayo and Joaquín Torres-García – the largest works by the two Modern art giants ever to appear at auction. Acquired directly from the artist in 1989, Sandías from 1980 is a resplendent example of Rufino Tamayo’s watermelon motif and one of the last canvases that he painted of the fruitful subject, as well as among the last works that he created before he ceased production in 1990 (pictured left, estimate $4/6 million). Construcción en Blanco was painted in Paris in 1931 at the apex of Joaquín Torres-García’s artistic output. This ambitious and exemplary work embodies the artist’s fully realized investigations into Universal Constructivism: his most original contribution to American abstraction: a theory he first conceptualized during his short but critical years of residence in New York from 1920-1922 (estimate $3.5/4.5 million).
