New Works for Sale in Virtual Galleries

- Aldo de Sousa- Galería de arte

The gallery was established in 1972. The interest in art was encouraged by the family. When we got started, during the sixties, an important art movement in our country was taking place at the Torcuato Di Tella Institute. The Torcuato Di Tella, was located very near our gallery, the Galería del Este. We were, too contagious of this feeling and so decided to open a store where we could sell reproductions from both Argentinean and foreign artists. During those times, we met the Espartaco Group: Juan Manuel Sanchez, Elena Diz, Pascual Di Bianco, among others. It was then that we began working with original pieces of art: Berni, Castagnino, Soldi, Quinquela Martin, Oscar Vaz, Daniel Zelaya, Vito Campanella, Enio Iommi, Claudio Girola, etc. As years went by, we decided to let the very young and unknown talents have a place. That`s how our gallery located in Arenales 966 was born and where nowadays we exhibit works from Juan Ranieri, Karin Godnic, Marcelo Lazarte, Julia Ninio, Tito Perez, among others. Our passion for Argentinean art leads us to take part in art fairs both in and outside Argentina.
