Mexican art, an area in which the Louvre’s Hispanic collection is intended to expand, will be showcased at the museum this spring.

A selection of some ten of the finest works from this “sister” school will be exhibited among the Spanish paintings. Among others, the monumental “Zurbaranesque” work of José Juárez, the Baroque dynamism of Cristóbal Villalpando and the softness and delicacy of Rodríguez Juárez will introduce visitors to the many facets of New World art during this period and give them an understanding of its close yet independent relationship with Spanish art.

Although represented in national museums, Latin American art remains little known in France. The book that accompanies this exhibition, based on inventory work conducted by the Louvre and the French National Institute of Art History (the BAILA project), provides an overview of the major Latin American works in French museums, and explores the origins and evolution of this artistic school.

Organized by Guillaume Kientz, Musée du Louvre, and Jonathan Brown, New York, Institute of Fine Arts.

This exhibition is organized with the support of the Fomento Cultural Banamex (Mexico).
