SOLD An important late 18th century Spanish Colonial oil painting on a metal plate of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Arguably the most popular and highly revered image in Mexican art, where most on the market are 20th century reproductions. This particular example is an authentic antique 18th century exceptionally fine painting depicting Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe", surrounded by a brilliant manderola of golden sun rays, clothed in sky blue heavenly robe, with golden stars, and standing on the moon. Legend tells of her appearance to the peasant Juan Diego in 1521, at the mountaintop shrine of the Pre-Columbian goddess Tonantzin. She filled his cloak with roses, and emblazoned her image on his cape, as proof of the miraculous visitation. She is the patroness of the Americas, and is sought to cure all ills.
The painting is within the 19th century wooden frame.
CONDITION: Minor paint loss, otherwise excellent.
DIMENSIONS: Size of painting in the frame: 48 cm x 37.5 cm (19 in x 14 3/4 in).
