The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston is currently exhibiting a wonderful collection of 20th-century Latin American Art. “Intersecting Modernities: Latin American Art from The Brillembourg Capriles Collection” is on view until September 2, 2013. The exhibit includes works by Wifredo Lam, Roberto Matta, Diego Rivera, and Joaquín Torres-García. For many, Diego Rivera may be the most recognized name (see image above), but all the works in the exhibit are exceptional and worth a visit.
