VISUALIZING GUADALUPE: FROM BLACK MADONNA TO QUEEN OF THE AMERICAS. Jeanette Favrot Peterson. University of Texas Press, Austin, 2014. Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Series in Latin American and Latino Art and Culture. 348 pp. with 145 ills. (111 col.). 29 x 23 cm. LC 2013-24217 ISBN 9780292737754 In English.
Publisher's description: This masterful study by Jeanette Favrot Peterson traces the transmission of Guadalupe as la Virgen de ida y vuelta from Spain to the Americas and back again, analyzing how the Spanish and Mexican titular images, and a selection of the copies they inspired, operated within the overlapping spheres of religion and politics. Peterson explores two central paradoxes: that only through a material object can a divine and invisible presence be authenticated and that Guadalupe's images were made to work for enacting revolutionary change while preserving the colonial status quo. She examines the artists who created images of Guadalupe, their patrons, and the diverse viewing audiences for whom those images were intended. This exegesis reveals that visual evidence functioned on a par with written texts (treatises, chronicles, and sermons of ecclesiastical officialdom) in measuring popular beliefs and political strategies.
