Arguably the most popular and highly revered image in Mexican art, this exceptionally fine and rare oil painting on canvas represents 'The Apparition of Our Lady of Guadalupe to Juan Diego.' Legend tells of her appearance to the peasant Juan Diego in 1521 at the mountaintop shrine of the Pre-Columbian goddess Tonantzin. She filled his cloak with roses and emblazoned her image on his cape as proof of the miraculous visitation. She is the patroness of the Americas and is sought to cure all ills.
