Power and Piety: Spanish Colonial Art

July 16 – September 24, 2017

The exhibition is drawn from the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection and is co-organized by the Museum of Biblical Art, New York, and Art Services International, Alexandria, Virginia.

The Spanish colonial Caribbean was home to thriving networks of artistic production and distribution that, favoring the devotional and educational uses of works of art, facilitated the vigorous trade of works of religious art.  Through paintings, sculptures, religious objects, and decorative art from the seventeenth through nineteenth century, Power and Piety reveals how the Spanish colonial Caribbean was part of a truly global network of commercial, intellectual, and artistic exchange.
