Abstract
La pintura religiosa del barroco iberoamericano vivió la encrucijada de una lucha interna por consolidar sus genuinos rasgos estilísticos. Las corrientes artísticas procedentes de la metrópoli condicionaron su expresión de libertad, realidad que obligaba a la sumisión, a la vez que despuntaba un deseo creciente de liberación. Estampas, grabados y todo un repertorio estético procedente de España arribó al continente americano en abundancia; modelos que reforzarían la creciente evangelización e impondrían el triunfo de la visión occidental del arte. Si bien, los ejemplos previos al arraigo de la pintura occidental nos vinculan con las técnicas y gustos indígenas, posteriormente cercenados, lo que generó desde finales del siglo XVI la inquietud por recuperar una identidad propia y singular.
The Ibero-American Baroque religious painting lived an internal dilemma to consolidate its natural stylistic features. The artistic currents from the metropolis conditioned his expression of freedom, a reality that forced submission, while a growing desire for liberation was emerging. Prints, engravings and an aesthetic repertoire from Spain arrived in America. Models would reinforce the growing evangelisation and impose the triumph of the western vision of art. Although the previous examples of the development of the western painting connect us with the indigenous techniques and tastes, later forgotten, what was generated from the end of the XVI century was the desire to recover an own and singular identity.
