BROSETA reinforces its support for patronage

The Ibero-American Awards for Patronage, a social initiative promoted by Callia, with the collaboration of BROSETA, celebrated its third edition, recognising the work as a patrons and collectors of art of the Duke of Alba, Carlos Fitz-James Stuart, and Venezuelan collector Patricia Phelps de Cisneros .

The jury of the Awards, was made up of Carmen Reviriego, Miguel Zugaza, Carmen Iglesias, Charo Izquierdo, Carmen Posadas and Estrella de Diego, and recognised by the Casa de Alba Foundation, which has one of the most important artistic patronages in the world, with objectives such as conservation and cultural diffusion through the opening to the public of the Palaces of Dueñas and Monterrey, and the digitisation of the documentary legacy, more than 30,000 documents, to make them available to researchers and scholars.

Patricia Phelps, founder along with her husband Gustavo Cisneros of the Cisneros Foundation, based in Caracas and New York, highlighted the support for educational and cultural initiatives in Latin America and the promotion of global awareness of Latin American heritage within a global framework. The importance of the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection (CPPC), made up of five different areas of Latin American cultural material, was also emphasised, and the website serves as a forum for critical thinking from and about Latin America.

Each year the jury recognises with these awards the work of two patrons, one Spanish and one Latin American, who stand out for their commitment in the conservation and diffusion of the Plastic Arts in Latin America.
