Item description for The Virgin, Saints and Angels: South American Paintings 1600-1825 from the Thoma Collection by Suzanne L. Stratton-Pruitt, Kenneth Mills, Thomas Da Costa Kaufmann, Thomas Cummins & Ramon Mujica Pinilla...
There is astonishingly little literature in English on painting in the Viceroyalty of Peru. Published in association with the Cantor Center for Visual Arts, this exhibition catalogue explores a little known aspect of the history of art that is increasingly appreciated for its energy and originality.Although the initial impetus for paintings in South America was provided by artists who came from Europe, they were soon outnumbered by natives who become proficient in decorating churches and public buildings. The 56 paintings—never previously published—in the Thoma Collection offer an accurate and compelling survey of the diverse schools of painting that developed in the vast regions of the Viceroyalty which yielded the present day countries of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Argentina.Exhibition schedule: Cantor Center for Visual Arts, Stanford University September 20-December 31, 2006 Suzanne L. Stratton-Pruitt is Curator of the Thoma Collection and author of several volumes including The Immaculate Conception in Spanish Art (1994).

GOOD BUT DESAPPOINTING Apr 11, 2008
I AM A FAN OF THE COLONIAL PAINTING IT IS GOOD BOOK WITH VERY GOOD ILLUSTRATIONS. BUT IT WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED TO FIND JUST A FEW PAINTINGS OF ANGELS AND ARCHANGELS. THE TITLE OF THE BOOK IS THE VIRGIN, SAINTS AND ANGELS SO I WAS EXPECTING SEVERAL AND GOOD ANGELS PAINTINGS AND THERE WERE JUST A FEW.
