    This fabulous series or suite of paintings follow the Old Testament story of Joseph's seduction and refusal of Potiphar's wife and then his rise to power through his visions of potential famine throughout Egypt.The arts that evolved in the Spanish vice-royalties of New Spain and Peru were, from their beginnings in the sixteenth century, very different from those of the much younger North American colonies. Unlike the iconoclastic culture of the Protestant settlers of England and Northern Europe, the Iberian culture transferred to the Americas was one in which both image making and the decorative arts were deeply intertwined with the state religion of Roman Catholicism. Thus, in Latin America, the church not only exerted enormous power over the lives of the European and indigenous peoples, but also, through its patronage, profoundly influenced the nature of the visual arts in these regions.
