I may be of service, if you still require it. I work with art dealers representing Puerto Ricans and placing works with collectors and museums in the States and Latin America. You would work with them directly to better represent your interests. Thank you.

I have a house full of paintings by PR artists Luis Borrero, Angel Berrios, Erick Sanchez, Moises Castillo...and many more. I need to liquidate most of them because I am moving to the US and cannot take them all. I am really looking for someone, or a gallery to take these works of art on consignment...or other terms to be negotiated. Please let me know...
