For centuries art collecting has been considered a privilege, associated with the elites and reserved for the exclusive enjoyment of a select few.
Today, the extension of artistic teaching and the development of the media have contributed to its socialization and to a new perception of the meaning of collecting art. Although it is still today considered a privilege, it has less exclusive precepts.
The general public has been learning and has understood that it is not necessary a large physical space or an extraordinary financial capital to get started in art collecting.
In the last century, large amounts of money were spent to buy a copy of La Gioconda or The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, to name a few relevant examples. Those reproductions the day after of being acquired could not be sold for even half of what was paid. However, others, without great knowledge, ventured to aesthetic sensibility and invested ridiculous figures in works of Pablo Picasso, Amedeo Modigliani, Paul Cézanne, Salvador Dalí, Gustav Klimt, Vasili Kandinski, Edvard Munch, Frida Kahlo, Marc Chagall, Diego Rivera, Piet Mondrian, Wilfredo Lan, among others. The works of the aforementioned painters are today venerated and admired in museums, galleries and private collections throughout the world as an object of worship. Its value is incalculable.
Subsequently, others took a risk and bought works by Kuntz, Andy Warhol, Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, and Jean-Michel Basquiat, forming a cyclical process. This shows that you only need a good offer, good taste and transparency to acquire the best work.
The treasured art does not make you sick, it lacks hunger, you do not have to take it to school, it does not run away, you just have to take care of it and enjoy it.
From the Paris Salon, Cuba achieved great notoriety in painting, placing itself in the universe of plastic arts. Later, the opening of art schools throughout the country, led to a vertiginous development of the visual arts. Today, four generations of creators coexist in this space who, with an almost zero market, have generated a high inventory of works for 40 years. From the last decade of the twentieth century, these works began to be visible, and exponents of all those generations are present in this collection.
With all commercial guarantees we make this material available to you, hoping that your visit to our site will be a rewarding experience and a chance to make Cuba visible, through a small representation of its artists.
