Spanish Colonial Art

Spanish Colonial Art is defined as the artistic production of Spain’s colonies in the New World. These works followed the historical development of styles previously established in Spain, but developed original features in different regions. The main centers were in Peru and Mexico, where there were skilled native artisans and relatively strong political organization. The style, with its unique mix of Spanish and indigenous elements, flourished until the last quarter of the 18th century when a current of neoclassicism invaded Latin America along with the official academies, and the great days of Spanish colonial art and architecture were basically over.
