SAN ANTONIO, TX.- The San Antonio Museum of Art today announced that it will receive 31 portraits from noted American photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’ Latino List series. Known for his large-format portraits, the group of Greenfield-Sanders works includes images of accomplished Latinos who span the worlds of culture, business, politics, and sports. The Latino List continues work Greenfield-Sanders has done previously to document the struggles and the accomplishments of different communities, including his Black List series of portraits of notable African-Americans. A promised gift from Houston-based art dealer and collector Hiram Butler and his spouse Andrew Spindler-Roesle, the works will go on view at the Museum in October 2017 as an exhibition titled The Latino List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders.

“Giving the Latino List to the San Antonio Museum of Art memorializes old friendships and shared values,” said donor Hiram Butler. “This group of photographs is especially important to me, as I grew up in Eagle Pass speaking Spanish, and San Antonio was my connection to the larger world of culture. Museum Trustee Banks Smith and I have known one another since we entered the University of Texas in 1970, while Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and I have been friends and worked together since 1979. I want my gift to acknowledge Banks and the friendship he has shown me—and to support an institution that does so much to share the art of cultures from around the world.”

“We are so grateful to Hiram Butler and Andrew Spindler-Roesle for this gift, which reflects the diverse culture of San Antonio and contributes much to our contemporary art collection,” said Katherine Crawford Luber, the Kelso Director of the San Antonio Museum of Art. “Greenfield-Sanders’ portraits are quietly compelling. The List demonstrates the important contributions that Latinos have made to American culture and all facets of American life.”

Timothy Greenfield-Sanders received a B.A. in Art History from Columbia University and a Master’s Degree in film from the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. He began shooting his large-format portraits in the late-1970s, finding a challenge in observing his subject’s mannerisms and looking for the opportunity to capture a moment, a pose, or an expression that would be special. Greenfield-Sanders’ portraits are in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, The New York Public Library, The Whitney Museum and The National Portrait Gallery, among others. In 2004, his series of 700 art world portraits was accepted into the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
