This 19th century Mexican folk retablo painting represents 'Our Lady of Mercy' (Nuestra Señora de Merced) together with The Infant Jesus and the scapular shield of the Mercedarian Order.
The accomplished painter who painted this beautiful retablo was clearly skilled in his craft. The anatomical features and the proportions may be imperfect, but the overall composition is strong. The strengths of this painting are manifested in subtle details -- the bridge of her nose, the purse of her lips, the surrounding shadows and highlights, the raised gold paint and the soft palette of blue, white and gold. An all around beautiful composition.
Dimensions: retablo measures 14 inches vertical x 10 inches horizontal. Frame measures 19 inches x 15 inches.
Condition: in excellent, original, unrestored condition with only minor paint loss.
