This fine and rare late 19th century ex-voto on canvas was last sold at Sotheby's New York on May 2 of 1990.
The ex-voto is dedicated in July of 1895 to the various 'imagenes' represented in the upper quadrant. According to the written narrative, the petitioner, Da. Eusevia, leaving the village of Atlixco for Huaquechula (East Puebla), was thrown from her horse after a man suddenly came from a gate / opening - causing her to break her right arm and also causing severe injury to her left. Her mother and her husband invoked and prayed to the various 'imagines' and she was cured. In recognition of this great miracle this retablo was presented.
Painted on a very fine linen canvas and mounted to the original wooden stretchers. Painting is displayed in a very high quality leather frame, custom made for this piece with hand tooling and hand woven corners.
Dimension: the ex-voto measures 20 inches horizontal x 14 inches vertical. Frame measures 24.5 inches x 20.5 inches.
In overall excellent condition.
