A quintessential motif of the Cuzco School was the depiction of the the Virgin Mary. In the oil painting offered today, we see the devoted Blessed Virgin, posing in a garden landscape with the Christ Child, while bearing a palm lead. Bendita Virgen con el niño Jesús y una rama de palma is a strikingly beautiful, albeit somber, rendition of a theme oft seen in the ancient paintings of the Cuzco School. The Cuzco School was an artistic tradition based in Cuzco, Peru during the Colonial period, in the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. When the Spaniards conquered the Inca Empire in 1534, the artistic systems of the Spanish soon followed. The Spanish desire to convert the indigenous peoples to the beliefs of western Catholicism resulted equally in the inculcation of the current artistic forms into a religious artistic outpouring, which however was highly influenced by the indigenous and Indian peoples. The Cuzco School of Painting, one of the most important in American Art, began in the town of Cuzco, Peru – a city which was the capital of the Incan Empire and has existed for nine centuries. It spread across all of the Andean area as an aesthetic expression of society. The Cuzco School paintings were typically of religious topics, and chiefly utilized bold bright colors and gold leaf. A quintessential motif of the Cuzco School was the depiction of the the Virgin Mary and the Christ Child. In the oil painting offered today, Bendita Virgen con el niño Jesús y una rama de palma, we see the devoted Virgin and the Christ Child, set in a garden landscape with the far right background displaying a riverside or lakeside view in the distance. The palm branch is a symbol of victory, triumph, peace and eternal life originating in the ancient Near East and Mediterranean world. The palm was sacred in Mesopotamian religions, and in ancient Egypt represented immortality. In Judaism, a closed frond of the date palm is part of the festival of Sukkot. A palm branch was awarded to victorious athletes in ancient Greece, and a palm frond itself is one of the most common attributes of Victory personified in ancient Rome. In Christianity, the palm branch is associated particularly with Palm Sunday, when according to Christian tradition palm branches were waved at the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. It was adopted into Christian iconography to represent the victory of martyrs, or the victory of the spirit over the flesh. Since a victory signals an end to a conflict or competition, the palm developed into a symbol of peace, as shown in today’s painting, Bendita Virgen con el niño Jesús y una rama de palma. Bendita Virgen con el niño Jesús y una rama de palma measures 26 inches x 19 1/2 inches framed, and 22 1/2 inches x 15 1/4 inches unframed. Bendita Virgen con el niño Jesús y una rama de palma is unrestored – wear and condition totally appropriate to age and purpose in life.
