Painted in Mexico, 1700-1790 Pinxit Mexici
'512 profusely illustrated pages with often superlatives texts — a book destined to become a standard reference.' - LA Times
This authoritative catalogue accompanying an exhibition at LACMA - the first comprehensive show on 18th Century New Spanish Art. The book represents the first serious effort to reposition the history of 18th-century Mexican painting, a highly vibrant period marked by major stylistic changes and the invention of new iconographies.
Authored by leading experts in the field, the book's essays address the tradition and innovation of Mexican painting, the mobility of pictures within and outside the viceroyalty, the political role of images, and the emphasis on ornamentation. Rounding out this volume are over 130 catalogue entries that offer new and authoritative interpretations.
