The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is the hot-venue to view the artistic creation at the exhibition of “The Arts in Latin America, 1492-1820.” The exhibition would host a matching display of 25 colonial objects on long-term loan from the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros. The exhibition would continue till 28 October. This is for the first time that a long-term loan to a US museum of Spanish colonial art from New York and Caracas-based colección has been made. The collection includes decorative arts, silverwork, carved ivories and paintings.
