The public now have a grand opportunity to travel  in time and space, to the pristine landscapes of Latin-America a few centuries ago, at the exhibition  “Boundless Reality”. On view at America’s Society and the Hunter College (nearby), the exhibition features more than 150 works  of European artists who traveled great distances to portray the nature and the people of Latin America, but also of native born-painters who drew in the European landscape tradition to reflect their own culture. This is a selection of rarely seen works that belong to the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection. Among the highlights, there are a few Brazilian landscapes – Rio de Janeiro, Paraíba and Santos.
