Item Description

An exceptional 17th Century Cuzco School (Spanish School, Peru) Oil on Canvas of St. Anthony of Padua holding the Christ Child.

 

We have had this incredible painting framed in a fine, gilt wood frame and set behind glass. 

 

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. 42 cm Height x 32 cm Width.
