The Agustin Fernandez Foundation is a 501(c) (3) organization created by Fernandez’s family in order to encourage an understanding and appreciation of Fernández’s artwork. 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 maintains a database that catalogues all work produced by Fernandez and an archive about the artist and his work. The Foundation reviews requests for copyrightsand also gives advice on the history, authenticity, preservation and restoration of works by Fernandez.
The Foundation gives no grants and makes no appraisals.
The Foundation’s trustees–Clea Fernandez, Sebastian Fernandez and Richard Nesson, Esq–wish to dedicate this site to Lia Fernadez. Lia was married to Agustín Fernández for over 46 years. She was his unwavering supporter and constant companion. The couple met in New York at an opening for one of Fernández’s shows and remained together until Lia died in New York a few short weeks prior to her husband’s passing.
