Print to Painting in New Spain A Free First Friday Gallery Talk

6 to 6:30 PM / New Mexico History Museum

How did artists in Spain's farflung colonies draw inspiration for the lavishly detailed artwork on display in Painting the Divine: Images of Mary in the New World? Secular and sacred engravings were sent to New World colonies like Santa Fe, and inventories made in the viceroyalties confirm that these European prints were displayed in churches and private homes. Local artists based their own work on them, helping to create a unique regional aesthetic. Meet curator Josef Díaz in the Painting the Divine gallery, where he will show how the art evolved. 

Free museum admission to everyone from 5 to 8 pm.
