Circuitos artísticos interregionales: de Quito a Chile. Siglos XVIII y XIX

  • Alexandra Kennedy Troya Universidad de Cuenca (Ecuador)


Only recently has Latin American historiography approached the subject of the Spanish American art market, the routes by which the works of art reach their final destinations, i.e. the civil and ecclesiastical institutions and prívate individuals including artists, and the aesthetic, cultural and economic effects of these contacts and movements. This study, one of the first of its kind, provides a revealing panorama of the relations between the art workshops of Quito, which produced images and paintings, and Chile, a very receptive market for works of art coming from the north.
