From Mexico to Manila, paintings and engravings of religious women were popular in Spanish America. These images conveyed spirituality while addressing the polemics of specific times and places. This lecture will explore the political, social and juridical power of female portraiture beyond its performance of piety. The visiting speaker for this event is Dr. Cristina Cruz Gonzalez, Associate Professor of Art History, Oklahoma State University. It will take place in the Capitol Room, located across the plaza in the Smith Building. This event is included in the price of admission. Free for members and UT students, faculty and staff.
