Painted in Mexico

Los Angeles County Museum of Art

The Thoma Foundation granted Los Angeles County Museum of Art $100,000 in support of the publication Painted in Mexico, 1700-1790: Pinxit Mexici. The first major exhibition devoted to eighteenth-century Mexican painting, Painted in Mexico is co-organized by Fomento Cultural Banamex, Mexico City and LACMA, where it was on view from November 19, 2017 through March 18, 2018. It will travel subsequently to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.


The Thoma Foundation has grant-making programs for organizations and for individuals. We accept grant proposals from non-profit organizations biannually, in the spring and fall. The Foundation runs four annual programs for individuals: the Arts Writing Award in Digital Art, the Marilynn Thoma Fellowship in Spanish Colonial Art, the Thoma Foundation Research and Travel Awards in Spanish Colonial Art, and the Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation Research Fellowship in Twentieth-Century Abstract Painting.

Open applications are available online through the Thoma Foundation Applicant Portal.
