In this episode of Expert Voices, Director of Latin American Art Anna Di Stasi examines the rich color and ethereal beauty of Wifredo Lam’s Omi Obini. Part of a celebrated series of anthropomorphic landscapes from the 1940s, this extraordinary painting encapsulates Lam’s unique synthesis of European Modernism and Afro-Cuban culture. Omi Obini is of the most important works by the artist to ever come to auction and will be offered as a highlight of Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale in New York.
