BROSETA supports the push for patronage

BROSETA has collaborated for one more year with the Ibero-American Patronage Awards, a social initiative promoted by the Callia Foundation that aims to promote the promotion of patronage and art collecting.


The Awards, which place a value on the patron and of art as a tool for social transformation, have recognised in this fourth edition the work of Baroness Thyssen, for her outstanding role in the universalisation of Art through the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, which houses the most important collection in private hands in the world; and Carlos Slim, for his social commitment to art through the Carlos Slim Foundation, which brings culture closer to society as a whole.


The jury of the Ibero-American Patronage Awards in charge of giving out these awards was formed by important personalities from the artistic and cultural world such as Konrad O. Bernheimer, President of the Fine Arts Section of TEFAF; Miguel Falomir, Director of the Museo Nacional del Prado; Carmen Iglesias, president of the Royal Academy of History; Gabriela Ortiz de Garza, president of the Council of Friends of the Palace of Fine Arts of Mexico; Carmen Posadas, Writer and National Literature Prize winner; Carmen Reviriego, president of Callia and Guillermo Solana, Director of the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum.


Among the attendees at the awards ceremony, held at the Hotel Ritz in Madrid, were  the prize-winners themselves, and personalities such as the Duke of Alba, business leaders Esther Koplowitz and Ignacio Sánchez Galán, the artistic director of the Thyssen- Bornemisza, Guillermo Solana; the general director of Ivorypres, Elena Ochoa Foster; the director of the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), Jorge Pérez; and Manuel Broseta, Luis Trigo and Julio Veloso, President and Partners of BROSETA.


The Ibero-American Patronage Awards were completed with a series of exclusive activities that were held during the weekend prior to the gala, consisting of personalised receptions at the Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum, the Royal Monastery of El Escorial, the Golnaghi Gallery and the Museo del Prado, where in the latter case there was a talk by Jaume Plensa, National Prize winner of Plastic Arts from the Spanish government and Medaille de Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres from the French government.
