Cuzco School Oil Paintings

The Escuela Cuzqueña in Cuzco, Peru has a long rich history of producing art that is a unique fusion of Andean and European style. This unique style of art depicts religious figures in otherworldly and dynamic style amplified by directed Heavenly light. The artists, often native or black, captured their profound connection to the spiritual world through their masterful artistic expression, often times hiding elements of pre-Colonial religious beliefs within their work. The traditions which began in the 1500's continue through to today among the local natives of Cuzco. Owning one of these paintings, feeling the power and history when in their presence will bring divine energy to any home, shrine, and altar.
