Pintado en México, 1700-1790: Pinxit Mexici es una exposición dedicada a un periodo en la historia de la pintura mexicana especialmente vibrante, marcado por importantes cambios estilísticos y la invención de nuevas y fascinantes iconografías. Al reunir más de un centenar de obras, muchas de ellas inéditas o restauradas para la exposición, este proyecto ofrece una perspectiva más amplia de las conexiones de la pintura novohispana con las tendencias artísticas transatlánticas durante el siglo XVIII. La exposición se organiza en siete núcleos temáticos titulados: “grandes maestros”, “maestros del arte de narrar y expresar”, “la nobleza de la pintura y la academia”, “pinturas de la tierra”, “el discurso del retrato”, “el mundo de la alegoría” e “imaginando lo sagrado”, mismos que exploran el ingenio de los pintores y los variados contextos en los que desarrollaron sus obras. La muestra representa la primera revalorización en profundidad de la pintura novohispana del siglo XVIII, y estará acompañada por una publicación enteramente ilustrada a color, escrita por reconocidos especialistas en el campo. Organizada conjuntamente con Fomento Cultural Banamex, A.C., Ciudad de México, la exposición se presentará posteriormente en el Metropolitan Museum of Art, Nueva York.

This exhibition was co-organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Fomento Cultural Banamex, A.C. 

Major support is provided by the Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation. The project is also supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, and by the Bryce R. Bannatyne Jr. and Elaine Veyna de Bannatyne Living Trust.

Painted in Mexico, 1700–1790: Pinxit Mexici

Growing up in Mexico City, I was keenly aware of the legacy of the so-called colonial era. To my then untrained eye, the many paintings that I saw in museums and adorning the walls of churches across the country seemed bold, full of color and expressive power…
