This study has a special place in the historiography of art of New Spain. Elisa Vargas Lugo, distinguished researcher at the Instituto de Investigaciones Esteticas and professor of the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters, National Autonomous University of Mexico, has poured her experience and broad knowledge in this book. The work is not limited to simple descriptions, but brings out new questions and discussions on this subject. This work proposes to delve into the historical causes that gave rise to the works of religious art in Mexico during the Viceroyalty, and it makes considerations that expand the focus of this phenomenon.
