MIAMI – With its warm light and eco-luxe design, Miami’s 1Hotel & Homes was the perfect venue for art as inspiring as the floor-to-ceiling waterfront views. On 19 April, Sotheby’s hosted a reception at the Starwood property's penthouse, where Axel Stein, Senior Vice President and head of Sotheby’s Latin American Art, was joined by Patricia Lobaccaro, President and CEO of BrazilFoundation and special guest Rene Silva, founder of Jornal Voz das Comunidades, a BrazilFoundation grantee. With the experts on hand, guests enjoyed a preview of highlights from our May Latin American art sales. Click ahead to see the colourful evening. LAUNCH SLIDESHOW
