A stunning 19th century Mexican folk retablo painting on heavy gauge tin - 'Our Lady of Mercy' (Nuestra Señora de Merced) with the scapular shield of the Mercedarian Order. This three quarter composition is unlike almost any other example of this subject we have handled, and undoubtedly, far more compelling. As shown here, Our Lady of Mercy is heavily ornamented, bejeweled, and replete with brilliant, iridescent gold work. The tonality of her pale skin juxtaposed against her rouge, her rock crystal earrings, her gold crown and her radiant gold aura is simply sublime. The overall level of artistry is superlative.
Dimensions: 14 inches vertical x 10 inches horizontal.
Condition: in excellent, original, unrestored condition with only minor paint loss.
