A fabulous 17th century Spanish Colonial oil on copper depicting the Virgin and Child on one side and The Deposition on the reverse.
Spanish colonial art includes paintings, sculptures and decorative objects produced across one and a half continents, from Mexico down to South America, over a period of about 300 years. All art and objects from this region that precede Christopher Columbus’ arrival in the New World in 1492, marking the beginning of the European conquest, are termed pre-Columbian . The Spanish colonial period ends around 1820, when Spain began to lose its grip on its colonies in the New World and independence was won by many of today’s Latin American nations.
