In Focus @ UMMA: New Acquisition Emilio Sanchez
Cuba and United States, 1921-1999
Oil on canvas
Gift of the Emilio Sanchez Foundation, 2011/2.63
Recently UMMA and several academic museums in the US benefitted from the generosity of the Emilio Sanchez Foundation when it donated much of Sanchez’s life work. The gift to UMMA of eighty paintings and lithographs, along with other recent acquisitions from Cuba such as two folk paintings given by Dr. James L. Curtis, expand the collection in the direction of the Caribbean, an exciting growth area for the Museum.
You can see this new acquisition on view in the first-floor connector between the Museum’s historic wing and the Maxine and Stuart Frankel and the Frankel Family Wing until July 8, 2013.
