This beautiful and groundbreaking book provides the first in-depth reassessment of 18th-century Mexican painting, making accessible an extraordinary body of images, alongside compelling new scholarship. This stunning volume 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 newly commissioned photography of 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. 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.

Recensione:

'Speaking of remarkable inventiveness, the exhibition is exciting because we are literally witnessing the invention of an entire art history. There has never been a comprehensive show of 18th century New Spanish art. The era begins in 1700 with the death of Spain's Charles II - also known as Carlos El Hechizado, or Charles the Mad - and the transfer of power from Habsburg to Bourbon rule. The show, a herculean effort that took six years to pull off, is a first.... The catalog is a brick - 512 profusely illustrated pages with often superlatives texts - a book destined to become a standard reference.' --LA Times Review, http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/arts/la-et-cm-mexican-painting-lacma-review-20171128-htmlstory.html

'The catalogue on which this catalogue is based. . . was the largest show on viceregal Latin American painting in the history of the United States. . . . . [It] includes five excellent thematic essays that contextualize the paintings historically and socially, accompanied by a panoply of illustration' --Gauvin Alexander Bailey, The Burlington Magazine July 2018
