Description

The first major exhibition of Mexican retablos to tour nationally in the United States, Mexican Retablo Painting: The Art of Private Devotion includes about seventy-five works from more than thirty-five American and Mexican public and private collections. Each object in the exhibition was chosen for its refinement of style, technique, and condition as well as for the iconographic and historic significance it carries. Organized by InterCultura, Fort Worth, Texas, with major support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Lende Foundation.
