Juan Abelló and his wife, Anna Gamazo de
Abelló, of Spain, are among the world’s top
private collectors of art. (Their drawing collection
alone spans from Goya to van Gogh to Schiele
to Freud, to name just a few highlights.) The
photographs gathered in this revelatory volume
are gathered from the Anna Gamazo de Abelló
photography collection,which is comprised solely
of twentieth- and twenty-first-century works
from Latin America and Spain. In accordance
with Gamazo de Abelló’s long standing commitment
to intensity and integrity of focus within
the collection, this volume is limited solely to the
Latin American works, and within that segment,
to just a few key artists whose work,when
looked at in depth and taken together, creates
a bold and condensed overview of the genre,
if such a word can even be used. They are:
Gabriel Orozco,Milagros de la Torre and Juan
Manuel Echavarría. In addition, Francisco Toledo
and Martín Chambi draw on the indigenous
legacies of Mexico and Peru; Argentina’s Horacio
Coppola and Venezuela’s Paolo Gasparini reflect
on their countries’ European ancestry; and
José Luis Venegas presents documentary
images that reveal the influence of the United
States in Latin America.
