Art & Art History
Procesos-Revista Ecuatoriana DE Historia
Based mainly on unpublished documents, this study covers a wide range of materials and artistic models, available for painters in the local market since the beginning of the colony. It includes both records like imported paintings, its themes, features and prices; brushes, supports, pigments, binders, blotters and other pictorial making elements; as well as market conditions in the buying/sale of materials and art works. Evidence shows the richness of styles and materials, both local and imported, which the first painters of Quito had reached.
