Feb 11—June 17, 2012
Fundación Banco Santander presents the exhibition Paintings from the Rubell Family Collection at Sala de Arte Santander. The exhibition features 66 works by 33 contemporary artists drawn from the Rubell Family Collection.
The Rubell Family Collection (RFC) was founded by Don and Mera Rubell in New York in 1964. Nowadays its main premises are located in Miami. The RFC is one of the world’s leading private collections of contemporary art, not only because of the quality of the works owned but also because of the number of acquisitions by year. Due to these new acquisitions, the collection is constantly expanding.
The exhibition will present 68 works by the most prominent artists from the Rubell Family Collection, such as Andy Warhol, John Baldessari, Elizabeth Peyton, Hernan Bass, Takashi Murakami, Neo Rauch, Francesco Clemente, Kaari Upson, Keith Haring, Adam McEwen, Cecily Brown…
