For nearly three centuries, Colonial Cuzco was an unparalleled artistic center in South America. Local painters forged a local tradition with a style of its own that would succeed in expressing the complex aspirations of Colonial society. This work interprets the Lima Creole, Isabel Flores de Oliva (1586-1617) who was the first American to be raised to the altars under the name of Saint Rose of Lima. Her rapid process of canonization, which culminated in 1671, was encouraged by Colonial society; and from that point on, the new saint’s image was circulated in the form of engravings, sculptural effigies, and canvases.
