Founded in 1983 by Paul Hughes, Paul Hughes Fine Arts focuses on the arts of the ancient Andes, documenting the rich cohesive effect they had on society’s then and the confluences brought about by the interweaving of art disciplines over 3000 years. These textiles have been collected and admired by many important artists such as Anni and Josef Albers, which have greatly influenced 20th/21st century artistic and aesthetic developments. These affinities between ancient and modern art practice are a visual celebration of our common humanity, creating a kinship with these ancient splendorous achievements and our own arts of recent times. That these precious artworks have survived is most fortunate due to the almost prefect preservation environment being one of the driest deserts in the world.
