JOURNAL FOR ART MARKET STUDIES (JAMS)

Collecting Latin America
Volume 7, Number 1, 2023

Guest Editor: Martin Berger

Contributions by Anna Antonini, Martin Berger, Caroline Fernandes Caromano, Mariana Francozo, Viola Koenig, Mary E Miller, Megan O’Neil, Carolina Orsini, Payton Phillips Quintanilla, Andrew D. Turner, Federica Villa 

This issue examines the influence that art market actors (specifically dealers and collectors) had on the formation of collections in museums in Europe and the United States. The focus lies on Latin America, looking primarily at archaeological collections but also briefly examining the lively trade in and market for ethnographic items that existed in the twentieth century.

In the 1950s, the planned construction of the Aswan High Dam threatened the accessibility and architectural integrity of Ramses II’s two temples at Abu Simbel. As a world wide joint project, the temples were dismantled and rebuilt on a higher plateau between 1963 and 1968. Source: Forskning & Framsteg 3, 1967, p. 161 / Wikimedia Commons.
