Selections from the
Latin American Collection of the Archer M. Huntington Art Gallery
is a virtual exhibit of original art, including 83
contemporary works by Latin American artists.
Since its inception in 1963, the Archer M. Huntington Art Gallery of the University of Texas at Austin has been a pioneer in the collection, exhibition, and research of twentieth-century Latin American art. With more than 1700 works, the Huntington has one of the finest and largest publicly held collections of twentieth-century Latin American art in the United States. The Gallery's entire Latin American collection represents significant artists and movements that have emerged in Mexico, South and Central America, and the Caribbean over the last fifty years. More than 500 artists from seventeen countries have work in the collection, including Fernando Botero, Eugenio Dittborn, Armando Morales, Antonio Segui, and Joaquin Torres-Garcia. The holdings also feature significant pieces by Mexican-American, Puerto Rican, and other Latin American artists living and working in the United States, a number of whose works can be viewed in the United States only at the Huntington.
This LANIC website features every selected artwork in four sizes, searchable by artist name, nationality, or thumbnail sketch. There is also a browse feature which allows the viewer to amble through the site as if it were a gallery. The site is accessible through the Arts & Culture section of our Joint Projects & Hosted Data Bases page. That page, in turn, is accessible from a link at the top of the LANIC home page. It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to this new and enterprising cultural space.
