Historical Context:
Today, families of Indian and Mestizo artists continue recreating and bringing new riches to the Cuzco School of painting by using their ancestor's techniques, oil on fabric, exquisite gilt, and models. These techniques create images which are always the same but never exactly alike. The hallmark of Cusqueña painting is the application of gold to simulate embroidered designs.
