Lecture: Francisco de Zurbarán and the Viceroyalty of Peru

Spanish Golden Age painter Francisco de Zurbarán (1598-1664), had a prolonged relationship with the Americas, specifically the Viceroyalty of Perú. Despite not having travelled outside of Spain, Zurbarán destined many of his paintings overseas, from Seville’s port. This talk by Akemi Luisa Herráez Vossbrink will consider the collection and reception of Zurbaran’s paintings in the Viceroyalty of Perú.
