This week’s Latin American art auction at Sotheby’s is a treasure trove for collectors eager to scoop up modern and contemporary masterpieces by artists like Rufino Tamayo and Diego Rivera. The painting-heavy annual spring sale will be complimented by a second Latin American-focused auction entitled The Legacy of Abstraction, which hones in on the region’s rich history of abstraction with works by artists like Lygia Clark and Lucio Fontana. Before the lots go live, we recommend browsing the sale through eBay, Sotheby’s digital partner. The forecast points to a fiery online bidding war.
