From the Publisher:

Treasures of Mexican Colonial Art addresses the development of Mexican Colonial painting and its relationship with European art and civilization, the changing political and social dynamics of Colonial Mexico, and the contributions of its indigenous peoples to the art of the New World. This book showcases the prestigious collection of the Davenport Museum of Art, among the largest and most important Mexican Colonial collections outside of Mexico City, revealing a two-hundred-year-long panorama of Mexican Colonial culture from the mid-seventeenth to the mid-nineteenth centuries. Collateral and documentary photography, as well as Colonial frames, retablos, maps, and conservation photography, make this a stunning contribution to the history of art in the Americas. Author Marcus B. Burke is Curator of Paintings and Drawings at the Hispanic Society in New York. He is a pre-eminent authority on Mexican Colonial art and has taught at Yale University. He contributed to the catalogue for the exhibition, Mexico: Thirty Centuries of Splendor, organized by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and has authored numerous books and articles on art from the Colonial period. This new book is the first major English-language monograph on Mexican Colonial art since the 1961 translation of Manuel Toussaint's 1949 book Colonial Art in Mexico. In this lavish volume Burke presents the most current scholarship on the transmission of European painting styles to Colonial Mexico.
