Luis De Jesus Los Angeles is very pleased to announce that Federico Solmi's painting titled The Chaming Statesman (2019) has been acquired by the Phillips Collection in Washington DC. The drawing will be exhibition among other recent acquisitions until May 31st.
Founded by art collector and philanthropist Duncan Phillips in 1921, The Phillips Collection has been collecting modern and contemporary art for one hundred years. Duncan Phillips’s former home—and additions to it—in Washington’s historic Dupont Circle neighborhood provides a unique setting for the growing collection of over 5,000 works. Following Phillips’s unconventional approach to exhibitions, The Phillips Collection galleries are frequently rearranged to facilitate new conversations between artworks and fresh experiences for visitors.
