LIGHTS FROM THE VICEREGAL AMERICA

Silver Masterworks
Cristina Esteras Martín, 2017

This selection of unique pieces produced in Spanish America in the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Except for the magnificent chalice from Guatemala, the remaining pieces

come from one of the most important collections ever of Hispaniccolonial silverwork. I am referring to the Apelles Collection, gathered by architect Carlos Alberto Cruz throughout his entire life, choosing extraordinary works of art guided by his good taste, extensive knowledge
and exquisite insight.
