A landmark exhibition of Pre-Columbian artifacts and objects assembled over 60 years will be unveiled at the new Barakat Gallery location on La Cienega Boulevard this month. Beauty in the Ancient Americas: Pre-Columbian Aesthetics will bring together and display pre-15th century objects and artifacts from such disparate regions as Northwestern Mexico to the plains of Peru.
There will be nearly 100 pieces on view, and a catalogue to document the exhibition.
Over its 125-year history, the Barakat antiquities company has sold and gifted items from its vast collections to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Vatican Museum, Getty Foundation, Los Angeles County Museum of Art and numerous others. Collectors the world over have purchased from Barakat. In the U.S., John Huston, Stanley Marcus, co-founder of Neiman Marcus, Proctor Stafford, Joel Silver and a bevy of celebrities have acquired antiquities from Barakat.
Barakat opened its first U.S. gallery in Beverly Hills in 1983. In addition to Pre-Columbian art and artifacts, the Barakat Gallery collections include African, Asian, Biblical, Byzantine, Chinese, Classical, Egyptian, Islamic and Near Eastern antiquities, Russian icons, and decorative works.
