Photographer Catherine Opie and painter Philip Taaffe, whose pieces hang in the most prestigious U.S. institutions, talk about their way of working and about the role of art in society. Rut de las Heras Bretin - There is a slice of America in the heart of Madrid. It’s not a metaphor, it’s a fact, between Paseo de la Castellana and Serrano Street one can find the Embassy and the home of the U.S. Ambassador, James Costos. In the garden, a fountain by Cristina Iglesias, creator of the doors of the Prado Museum extension, leads to the entrance to an art gallery, the collection that Costos houses.
