Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This beautifully illustrated catalogue showcases 126 Spanish and Portuguese artworks from the 17th and 18th centuries, all highlights from the dazzling collection of Roberta and Richard Huber. Featuring works in a variety of mediums and from far-flung places, including paintings, silver, and furniture from South America and sculptures in ivory from the Spanish Philippines and from Portuguese territories in India.

Distinguished experts shed light on these significant objects, many of which have not been previously published and which illustrate the unparalleled artistic exchanges between and within these colonial empires. The Andean painters Melchor Pandeacute;rez Holguandiacute;n (1660andndash;1732) and Gaspar Miguel de Berrandiacute;o (c. 1706andndash;c. 1762) inventively interpreted European iconographies, while similar adaptations took place in Asia, where native craftsmen, carved Christian images in ivory. These works traveled along the trade routes connecting Europe to Asia and the Americas, thus influencing the development of a new visual culture.

Synopsis:

The global reach and exchanges of the Spanish and Portuguese colonial empires in the 17th and 18th centuries are demonstrated through artworks from this esteemed private collection.
