The Carl & Marilynn Thoma Foundation Added a New Work to its Collection

 

One of the most popular advocations in Colombia, this painting on panel of Our Lady of Monguí is a welcome addition to the Foundation’s collection of works from Nueva Granada.  According to legend, the image was sent as a gift to the village of Monguí by either Charles V or Philip II in thanks for their allegiance to the Spanish crown.  In some versions of the legend, the king himself was responsible for painting the miraculous image.  Featuring the brown tones typical of Colombian painting of the 17th century, the gold touches were likely added later in the 18th century.

Guadalupe Maravilla is the 2021 Recipient of Henie Onstad’s Lise Wilhelmsen Art Award

 

Guadalupe Maravilla (b. 1976, El Salvador) is a visual artist working and residing in Brooklyn, New York. In 1984, aged eight, Maravilla immigrated to the United States as an undocumented, unaccompanied child, fleeing civil war in El Salvador. When as an adult, he was diagnosed with cancer, Maravilla was treated with radiation and chemotherapy alongside his own healing practices and became cancer free. Both events have had an impact on Maravilla’s artistic practice and are present in his artworks.

An exhibition dedicated to Maravilla’s work will be on display at the Henie Onstad Kunstsenter in early 2022.

The Lise Wilhelmsen Art Award Programme is the result of a partnership between the Arne Wilhelmsen family and the Henie Onstad Kunstsenter and marks the continuation of a long-lasting friendship and engagement in the arts.

Whilst the Lise Wilhelmsen Art Award Programme will be international, it will remain rooted in Norway. It will include the prize and corresponding exhibition at the Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, accompanied by a catalogue, audience engagement programmes and an acquisition budget allowing for the reciepient’s work to be included in the Henie Onstad Collection.
