Description

By Ilona Katzew with contributions from Luisa Elena Alcalá, Jaime Cuadriello, Paula Mues Orts, and Ronda Kasl

Available in both English and Spanish editions, Painted in Mexico, 1700–1790: Pinxit Mexici 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. Exquisitely illustrated with never-before-published artworks, the book provides a broad view of the connections of Mexican painting with transatlantic artistic trends and emphasizes its own internal developments and remarkable pictorial output.

During this time painters were increasingly asked to create mural-size paintings to cover the walls of sacristies, choirs, staircases, cloisters, and university halls among others. Significantly, the same artists also produced portraits, casta paintings (depictions of racial mixing), folding screens, and finely rendered devotional images, attesting to their extraordinary versatility. 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. There are over 130 catalogue entries that offer new and authoritative interpretations.
