New Spain Art Collection-01_edited.jpg

The New Spain Art Collection includes paintings, polychrome sculptures, silver, Talavera pottery, ivories, and furniture from 1521 to the early 1800s. Once thought of as being reproductions of the European Masters, the New Spain artists established their unique style with vibrant colors and techniques that included applying fabric, jewels and inlaid shells. Some of the well-known artists included in the collection are Juan Correa, Miguel Cabrera, Cristobal de Villalpando, Jose de Ibarra and Morales Van den Eynden.
