Treasures of Mexican Colonial Painting: The Davenport Museum of Art Collection

Marcus B. Burke

Showcasing the prestigious collection of the Davenport Museum of Art—among the largest and most important Mexican colonial collections outside of Mexico City—this book addresses the development of Mexican colonial painting and its relationship with European art and civilization, the changing political and social dynamics of colonial Mexico, and the contributions of its indigenous peoples.


Marcus B. Burke is the curator of paintings and drawings at the Hispanic Society of America in New York. An authority on Mexican colonial art, Dr. Burke has contributed to and authored numerous publications on European and New World art.
