This 19th century Mexican folk retablo represents "Nuestra Señora de Refugio de los Pecadores," or "Our Lady, Refuge of Sinners." NS de Refugio is perhaps the most popular of all subjects in retablo art. She is almost always depicted as she is here, alight a bed of white clouds and encircled by a colorful garland of flowers.
The retablo is attributed to one of the great retablo masters - Concepcion Avila, otherwise known as the 'Bee Sting Lip' painter. His unique painterly style, very much represented in the retablo offered here, is unmistakable.
Dimensions: retablo measures 10 inches vertical x 7 inches horizontal.
Condition: in good condition with only a small amount of paint loss.
