in 2015, León Gallery was entrusted with a caché of almost a hundred works by Fernando Zobel that he gave to friends and fellow artists Jim and Reed Pfeuffer. It was a friendship that spanned 40 years between Manila, Madrid, Rhode Island, and Boston. One work from the Saeta Series is now reoffered for sale and will be part of the Asian Cultural Council Auction 2020.
León Gallery and the Asian Cultural Council held a joint press conference yesterday for the upcoming Asian Cultural Council Philippines Art Auction 2020. A part of the auction's proceeds will help fund the ACC Philippine Fellowship Program.
Watch out for the astounding works to be sold at the Asian Cultural Council Philippines Art Auction 2020 happening on February 22!
The ultimate portraitist, Felix Ressurreccion Hidalgo, depicts the prosperous Don Theodore Lucassen, of both the Hague and Java. Painted in Paris in 1887, it is a companion piece to the lyrical "Ensimismada" of Theodora Valck Lucassen, also painted in Paris 1887. This portrait of a Parisian grandee is a highlight of the Leon Gallery ACC Art Auction 2020.
