Works for Sale in Virtual Galleries

- Aldo de Sousa-Galeria de Arte

The gallery was established July 13, 1972, encouraged by longtime family interest in art and antiques. During the 1960s, an important art movement was taking place in Argentina at the Torcuato Di Tella Institute, which was located very near to our gallery in the Manzana Loca area, which had so much to do with that exciting period. Initially Aldo de Sousa opened a store to sell reproductions from both Argentinean and foreign artists. During those times, we met the Espartaco Group—among them Juan Manuel Sanchez, Elena Diz, Pascual Di Bianco—whose work based in social themes related to the gallery’s mission. We then began working with original pieces of art by Berni, Castagnino, Soldi, Quinquela Martin, Oscar Vaz, Daniel Zelaya, Vito Campanella, Enio Iommi, Claudio Girola, etc. In later years the gallery provided the very young and emerging talents with a place in the market, resulting in the gallery’s location at Arenales 966 and where we now exhibit works by 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 inside and outside of Argentina. Visit the virtual gallery
