Latin American artists have exploded on to the global art scene, evident in Paris' Centre Pompidou retrospective of the Cuban painter Wifredo Lam this year as well as works by Latin American artists being donated to MoMA, New York.

Renowned artists Carlos Cruz-Diez and Jesús Rafael Soto will feature in Morton Subastas' sale. The sale has a particularly important work by Fernando Botero, one of the most famous of Latin America's art exports. This 1958 work is considered a piece from Botero's youth, a fine example of the first steps the artist took into creating his recognisable voluptuous figures.

Morton Subastas will also presents a series of beautiful self-portraits by artists José Luis Cuevas, Miguel Covarrubias, Alfredo Castaneda, Francisco Toledo and Edouard Duval-Carrie.
