A passion for Peruvian art is one of the legacies of the Lambarri Orihuela family; it is an element of its identity as important as agriculture and community outreach.
A visit to Hacienda Huayoccari begins with a pisco sour and a tour through the family art collection. A selection of works provides an overview of the art created by the different inhabitants of the Peruvian Southern Andes. Objects produced by the Tiwanaku and Southern Wari, Inca artifacts and colonial paintings and sculptures make this an astounding window into the region’s history, as well as an unforgettable aesthetic experience.
A Passion for Peruvian Art
Collection of Prehispanic, Colonial, and Folk Art
The family thus preserves the tradition of making its collection available to those who share their love for Peruvian art. The patriarch, Don José Orihuela, built a solid collection of pre-Hispanic, colonial and folk art. This collection was the basis of the Religious Art Museum, in the Archbishop’s Palace in Cusco, managed by the José Orihuela - Cusco Archbishopric Foundation. Orihuela also donated a collection of 128 qeros to the San Antonio Abad University in Cusco, which can be visited at the Inka Museum. His son-in-law Jesús Lambarri contributed to the collection with pre-Columbian and colonial artworks, as well as a vast library. Jesús Lambarri’s son José Ignacio and his wife Ana María Barberis have continued to expand the collection, mainly with folk art from the Southern Andes.
