When friend of arts·meme Juan Bastos, who is not just a talented and in-demand portrait artist but also a super nice person, shared with us his distinguished oil painting of his client Eugenio Lopez, completed last year, we were struck by the skillful rendering of a powerful-looking young man.
On November 19, 2013, he did so. Museo Jumex, in the heart of Mexico City’s fashionable Polanco district, spans 40,000 square feet and houses a collection that Lopez has amassed since 2001; it’s identified in this Vanity Fair article as a major collection of the Americas and certainly the largest in Latin America, with significant holdings in Twombly, Rauschenberg, Koons and Hirst.
Super exciting that Mexico City, already such a great arts destination, will now host this new museum.
A major exhibition of works by Juan Bastos, part of Pacific Standard Time LA/LA, opens November 4, 2017 at Dennenberg Fine Arts in West Hollywood.
