The Andean Cultures Working Group presents a talk by Victoria Sancho Lobis, from the Art Institute of Chicago, titled "South American Painting in the Spanish Empire: Art History in Progress". 

Recent years have witnessed a surge in the attention given to colonial Latin American art by museums in the United States. Temporary exhibitions and long-term installations have introduced North American audiences to paintings, sculptures, and decorative art objects from Central and South America in the time of the Viceroys. Still, fundamental questions remain about how these objects should be evaluated and interpreted, and consequently, how the story of their production should be told. Emerging from the study of a major private collection of South American colonial paintings, this presentation will asses the state of art historical discourse related to these objects.

This event is sponsored by the Department of Spanish and Portuguese and co-sponsored by the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program and the Department of Art History.
