Frederico Sève is a leading authority in the art world who has been instrumental in bringing unknown Latin American artists to New York and propelling them onto the greater forefront of the international scene for the last forty-five years. He is credited with having discovered Carmen Herrera, the pioneer of Latin American Modernism, whom he instantly launched onto a worldwide platform after she received her first show at the Frederico Sève Gallery in 2004. Under Mr. Sève’s direction, now-acclaimed artists, such as Gego, Mira Schendel, Maria Fernanda Cardoso, Ana de Cueva and others, were exhibited at the Frederico Sève Gallery years before they reached their current status.
Frederico Sève Gallery, formerly known as latincollector, exhibits and promotes artists from Latin America and Spain in an international context. The gallery’s aim is to assist collectors, art professionals and academics to discover, view and purchase works that transcend territorial boundaries.
