Piranesi and Francisco José de Goya and a scarce, monumental woodcut from the circle of  Titian.

The Modern offering features a dynamic selection of Latin American prints and originals, including drawings by Diego Rivera and Roberto Matta, as well as an extensive offering of scarce Rufino Tamayo Mixografía prints. It is the most comprehensive selection of Latin American Art that Swann has offered, to date.
