NEW ENGLAND/NEW SPAIN: PORTRAITURE IN THE COLONIAL AMERICAS, 1492-1850. Ed. by Donna Pierce. Denver Art Museum, 2016. Published in association with University of Oklahoma Press, Norman. 224 pp. with 179 ills. (170 col.). 28 x 22 cm. ISBN 9780914738503 In English.
Publisher's description: In 2014 the Denver Art Museum held a symposium hosted by the Frederick and Jan Mayer Center for Pre-Columbian and Spanish Colonial Art and co-organized by Donna Pierce and Emily Ballew Neff, Director of the Brooks Museum, Memphis. They assembled an international group of scholars to present recent research on portraiture in the Spanish colony of New Spain (Mexico) and the British colonies of North America. This volume presents revised and expanded versions of papers presented at the symposium. Michael Schreffler (University of Notre Dame) opens the volume with a discussion of portraits of Cortes and Moctezuma in sixteenth-century New Spain. Clare Kunny (Art Muse, Los Angeles) examines portraits of Antonio de Mendoza (1490-1552), the first viceroy of Mexico. Susan Rather (University of Texas, Austin) analyzes portraiture in colonial British America and landscapes included in them. Karl Kusserow (Princeton University Art Museum) explores selfhood and surroundings in British American portraits. Paula Mues Orts (National School of Conservation, Mexico) examines the portrait series commissioned and displayed in colonial Mexico by religious and civic organizations as a claim to power and prestige.
