In the style of the 18th century Cuzco School. Virgin... - Lot 11 - Artenchères
In the style of the 18th century Cuzco School. Virgin and Child under a dai with columns, known as Nuestra Señora de Cocharcas. Paper mounted on canvas Height: 58 cm Width: 49 cm Bears a signature and a date 1767 Ancient restorations Openworked, carved, stuccoed and gilded wooden frame: 76x66 cm (Some gilding wear) The Virgin of the Sanctuary of Concharcas, in the Andes, is a statue that has been highly venerated in Peru since the 16th century and is the subject of important pilgrimages. Cocharcas in Quechua means marshland or swampy. Numerous painted reproductions of them were made in the middle of the 18th century. Ours uses the same composition, of which a larger example, enriched with gold highlights, dated 1757, is in the Lowe Art Museum in Miami: the statue is represented under a canopy decorated with bells, holding roses in the left hand, two of the vases of flowers on either side, in the mountainous landscape of the Peruvian Sierra. The small oval cartel with the date in the centre and the tiny figures underneath are also shown. Another version is kept in the Brooklyn Museum, located around 1765 (199 x 1.43 cm); the lower procession is more complex and richer in characters. Expert: Cabinet Turquin
