Revealing a Mexican Masterpiece: The Virgin of Valvanera, showcases a painting from the DAM's Spanish Colonial art collection attributed to Cristóbal de Villalpando. This large-scale oil painting made in colonial Mexico around 1700 recently underwent conservation funded by a grant from Bank of America's Art Conservation Project. The subject of The Virgin of Valvanera is European in origin and derives from a legend of a statue of the Virgin hidden in a tree during an invasion in the area of Valvanera, Spain. Villalpando is considered the most accomplished artist of the colonial period in Mexico and a pioneer in developing a unique painting style decidedly divergent from European traditions.
