Exhibition:
Re-envisioning the Virgin Mary: Colonial Painting from South America
Blanton Museum of Art, Austin, Texas
Two-part exhibition:
(1) 20 September 2014 – 14 June 2015
(2) July 2015 – 2016

A two-part exhibition, the first phase of which features seven paintings on loan from two of the United States’ most distinguished collections of colonial South American art: the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection, New York, and the Marilynn and Carl Thoma Collection, Chicago.
The paintings, created in what are now the countries of Peru and Venezuela, represent devotions to Mary that were popular in Spain in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and brought to the Americas by Spanish colonists.

In phase two, which opens in July 2015, the works reflect a different narrative with uniquely South American elements: the Virgin in the New World. Included are paintings by masters Antonio José Landaeta and Juan Pedro López, and several works by unidentified artists.
