Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Acquired directly from the artist by the present owner

    This lot is from a series of six drawings Neri created after a trip to Central and South America in 1969. During this time he was fascinated by architectural sites especially when viewed from above. The title of the series, Emborados translates as "erased" and refers to the erasure or disappearance of the architectural ruins.

    We are grateful to Anne Kohs for assisting with this catalog description.
