ABOUT THE ART:

If you were to walk through any Museum that has Spanish Colonial~Latin American paintings,or any fine art gallery that specializes in carrying 16th-18th century "Devotional Art" pieces from the Latin Americas,(with the focus on Cuzco Peru), these are the type of paintings you will find & also come out of the Cuzco School.This traditional style of painting originated after the 1534 Spanish Conquest of the Inca Empire..These style of paintings are from Roman Catholic artistic tradition based in Cusco, Peru during the Colonial period from the 16th to the 18th Centuries. The European influence in these paintings came from the Spanish who tried to convert the Incas to Catholicism. These specific style of paintings are characterized by their exclusive use of religious images, lack of perspective, and the predominance of red, yellow, and earth colors & lots of gold leaf.
