Summary note:
A publication by Colombian historian dealing with the sculptural heritage that Colombia treasured during the Mannerist period and the first section of the baroque. Colombia constituted the nucleus of an extinct colonial territory called New Kingdom of Granada by the Spanish conquerors, which remained active between the years 1514 and 1810. Panama and part of the republics of Ecuador and Venezuela, were also part of the territory, although the historian focuses his research on the present Colombian territory. This sculptural collection is characterized by its great number of works of art and the great quality of them. The close relations of the New Kingdom of Granada with the metropolis Spanish artists involved both a notable artistic dependency and the commission to workshops or artistic circles of the most prestigious sculptors who resided mainly in Seville from the second third of the XVI until the end of the next century. The book is organized in several chapters in chronological order, from the Spanish-Flemish influence to the sculptures of the circle of Pedro Roldán, passing through artists such as Juan Bautista Vásquez, Jerónimo Hernández, Marcos Cabrera, Juan de Oviedo, Martínez Montañés, Diego López Bueno, Francisco de Ocampo, Juan de Mesa and Alonso Cano, among others. The publication analyzes the few documented and already known sculptures, those documented but still unknown and those considered anonymous but of clear Sevillana affiliation, either for having arrived from that port or for having been the product of sculptors trained in their artistic focus who emigrated to the colonized lands of Latin America.
