Book Description Museum of New Mexico Press, Santa Fe, 2013. Hardcover. Condition: New. 156 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. SPANISH COLONIAL ART. A native of Burgos, in northern Spain, Bernardo Miera y Pacheco (1713-1785) drew the first maps of New Mexico and the Four Corners region, and many art historians consider Miero the first New Mexico santero, working in the baroque style of his native Spain while creating New World inages that would influence later santeros. The full extent of his art, life, and works are the focus of this long anticipated book that discusses Miera's remarkable contributions as artist, explorer, and cartographer. Miera would have been remembered just for his exquisite paintings and religious sculptures, but he also had a multifaceted intellectual curiosity which led him to explore a diverse range of endeavors - as a distinguished soldier, a captain of the Spanish Royal Corp of Engineers, painter, alcalde (town mayor), and an intrepid explorer of Spain's vast northern colony. He was one of the foremost early cartographers of the region's vast unchartered lands, produucing maps between 1743 and 1779 that were famous for accuracy, artistry, and attention to geography, geology, and ethnography. Miera became a well-known and sought-after source for religious images due to his diverse artistic talents, skillfulness in making sacred images, and his understanding of religious iconography. He received commissions to create altar pieces, such as the one for Capilla Castrense, or military chapel that once graced the Santa Fe Plaza, a stone altar screen that today adorns the Cristo Rey Church on Canyon Road in Santa Fe. He is credited with the altar screen at Zuni Pueblo and with other religious works found in other Pueblo churches. While he undoubtedly would have described himself as Spanish, his art sparked a fusion of aesthetics, materials, and styles that helped to create the culturally unique santero tradition that began in the late eighteenth century, flowered into the mid-nineteenth century and continues to thrive today. The book documents all surviving works and includes prototypes in Mexico City and the artist's native Spain. The insightful essays by leading scholars create a portrait of a complex and talented indvidual who lived in a remote place that invited him to innovate and diversify his interests. Miera lived between two worlds, as a Spanish colonist in a place of indigenous peoples. (Key Words: Bernardo Miera y Pacheco, Spanish Colonial Art, Thomas E.
