When we think of a creative getaway, we think Bahia in Brazil. First settled by the Portuguese in 1500, the state of Bahia boasts Brazil’s longest and most beautiful coastline, a tropical climate, lush forests, and a mix of African, European and Indian cultures. Home to many musicians and artists—Marepe lives and works in the bustling capital city of Salvador, Kenny Scharf has a coastal studio where he goes to paint, and Ralph Gibson and Clifford Ross have traveled to the region to make photographs—Bahia is the perfect place to seek inspiration while relaxing on a sandy beach and taking in the sights.

About the Collection
Steven Learner believes that the best way to collect is blind. Blind to value or provenance, trends or fashion, just trusting your eye.
