The Rafael Soriano Foundation is created by Soriano’s family in order to preserve and encourage an understanding and appreciation of Soriano’s artwork as he is one of the major Latin American artists of his generation. The Foundation promotes exhibitions and scholarship about the artist and seeks to place his pieces in important museums and collections around the world for all to enjoy. It also will maintain a database that catalogues all work produced by Soriano and an archive about the artist and his work. The Foundation reviews requests for copyrights and also gives advice on the history, authenticity, preservation and restoration of works by Rafael Soriano. The Foundation gives no grants and makes no appraisals.
