INTERVIEW WITH REBECCA LONG

Curator of Doctrine and Devotion

Rebecca Long, curator at the Art Institute of Chicago, discusses iconography and the exchange of images and ideas across the Atlantic.

The Spanish Colonial collection includes paintings that capture the expressions and intertwined history of European and Andean cultures. The paintings represent the geographic diversity of the Viceroyalty of Peru, Spain’s management of its interests from Mexico and Central America (New Spain) to South America (all of which was called Peru).
