In keeping with the museum’s policy and the accepted guidelines established by the AAMD, all proceeds from the sale of this artwork will be used for future art acquisitions.

The works will be included in Christie’s upcoming Latin American Art sale on November 19, which includes over 240 lots by important modern and contemporary Latin American artists. Additional information on the sale may be found at
