Le Mexique au Louvre — Chefs-d’œuvre de la Nouvelle Espagne XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles
Le Mexique au Louvre
Chefs-d’œuvre de la Nouvelle Espagne XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles
Past: March 7 → June 3, 2013
Mexican art, an area in which the Louvre’s Hispanic collection is intended to expand, is showcased at the museum this spring.
A selection of some ten of the finest works from this “sister” school is exhibited among the Spanish paintings. Among others, the monumental “Zurbaranesque” work of José Juárez, the Baroque dynamism of Cristóbal Villalpando and the softness and delicacy of Rodríguez Juárez introduce visitors to the many facets of New World art during this period and give them an understanding of its close yet independent relationship with Spanish art.
Although represented in national museums, Latin American art remains little known in France. Organized by: Guillaume Kientz, Musée du Louvre, and Jonathan Brown, New York, Institute of Fine Arts.
