Luchita Hurtado (b. 1920 Caracas, Venezuela) lives and works in Santa Monica, California. In 1928 Hurtado immigrated to New York City, where she began her career in the early 1940s as a fashion illustrator for Condé Nast and a muralist for Lord & Taylor. In the mid-1940s Hurtado frequently travelled between New York and Mexico City, where she worked within a scene of international artists and writers who comprised a North American WWII diaspora. Then, in the late 40s Hurtado relocated to Mill Valley, California, where she associated with the Dynaton Group. In 1951 Hurtado moved to Los Angeles, where she has resided ever since. Hurtado has shown internationally for seven decades and will be featured in this summer’s Made in L.A. 2018 at the Hammer Museum.

The Hilton Als Series: Lynette Yiadom-Boakye

Recent portrait-like paintings by contemporary British artist Lynette Yiadom-Boakye are displayed adjacent to the historic Portrait Gallery at The Huntington. The installation of five of Yiadom-Boakye’s studies of fictional characters create a dialogue with The Huntington’s collection of highly formal 18th-century British portraits. Drawn from the world of found images and imagination, Yiadom-Boakye’s figures seem familiar but also mysterious.   Mondays – Sundays 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (Except Tuesdays) $25 weekdays / $29 weekends
