Isabella Hutchinson has over three decades of experience in the acquisition and sale of modern and contemporary Latin American and Caribbean art. She founded Hutchinson Modern & Contemporary in 2001 after a successful career at the helm of Sotheby’s Latin American Art Department in New York. Ms. Hutchinson is also a long-time collector of fine art, and therefore has a keen understanding of what it means to assemble a cohesive collection that blends works of historical and personal significance.
Ms. Hutchinson began her career in the Latin American Art Department at Sotheby’s New York in 1986. In 1992 she assumed the role of Assistant Vice President, moved to Paris, and worked on the sale of the Estate of Juliet Man Ray. Returning to New York in 1995, Ms. Hutchinson soon rose to become Director of the Latin American Art Department, and a Senior Vice President of Sotheby’s worldwide. During her tenure at the auction house, Ms. Hutchinson tripled annual sales of Latin American art, and was instrumental in expanding the array of artists offered by the company. She continues to possess in-depth knowledge of the market for works by modern masters, including Wifredo Lam, Matta, Xul Solar, Leonora Carrington, and Joaquín Torres-García, among others. She has also emerged as a champion of artists who merit additional local and international recognition.
Ms. Hutchinson holds a B.A. in Art History from Tufts University, and an M.A. in the History of Decorative Arts and Design from Parsons. She is a Trustee of Studio in a School and the Estate of Jennifer W. Reeves, and she is a member of the Americas Society’s Arts of the Americas Circle and of ArtTable. She has lectured worldwide.
