The Spanish Colonial Arts Society announces the largest permanent gift of art from outside of New Mexico, ever donated to the society in its 88-year history.
An exhibition of the gift items will open to the public on June 22 at the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art, 750 Camino Lejo on Museum Hill in Santa Fe.
Silver filigree baskets from Ayacucho, gilded frames from Cuzco, reverse-painted glass from Cajamarca, folding screens from Korea and China, porcelain tableware from France, silver-plated dessert settings from London — these were just some of the furnishings found in the elegant home of Miriam and Pedro Beltrán in Lima in the 1950s where dignitaries from around the world were entertained.
The collection amassed by the Beltráns, guided by Miriam’s artistic eye, reflects not only their international life style, but their abiding interest in and passion for Peru.
Side-by-side with European and Asian golden age furnishings are pieces emblematic of Peru and its history.
Selected to be Peru’s Ambassador to the United States, Peru’s prime minister and minister of finance and editor and publisher of Peru’s highly regarded newspaper, La Prensa, Beltrán was the quintessential Peruvian gentleman.
