Item Description

Absolutely outstanding late 18th / early 19th Century Cuzco School (Spanish School, Peru) Oil on Canvas of Saint Isidore the Labourer, patron of the peasants.

Isidore the Laborer, also known as Isidore the Farmer (Spanish: San Isidro Labrador) (c. 1070 – 15 May 1130), was a Spanish Farmworker known for his piety toward the poor and animals. He is the Catholic patron saint of farmers, and of Madrid; El Gobernador, Jalisco, Honduras; and of Tocoa  Honduras. His feast day is celebrated on 15 May.

We have had this incredible painting fully professionally cleaned, paint stabilised and framed in a fine, gilt wood frame.  One of the images shows the painting before the professional cleaning had taken place.

Craquelure and Wear commensurate to the age of the painting.

The Cuzco or Cusco school was a Roman Catholic artistic tradition that began in the 1500's in Peru, following the Spanish conquest and subsequent attempts by the Spanish invaders and missionaries to implement the Catholic faith and associated customs upon the Peruvian people. The school was established in the ancient city of Cusco which had previously been the capital of the Incan empire.

Bernardo Bitti arrived in Peru in 1583, and with his arrival the acceleration of Cuzqueno Art flourished. During his two stays in Cusco, Bitti was commissioned to make the main altarpiece of the church of his Order, replaced by another after the earthquake, and painted some masterpieces, such as The Coronation of the Virgin, currently in the museum of the church of La Merced, and the Virgen del pajarito, in the cathedral. 

Cuzco School paintings are marked by their baroque influenced imagery and the subjects of the paintings shown with light focused upon them.

Visible Paining approx. 99.5 cm Height x 80 cm Width.
