Spanish colonial tradition

The Spanish Colonial era in the New World began with the encounter of Christopher Columbus in 1492 and continued until the early 19th century when war created independent countries. Rich in artistic endeavors, the colonial period witnessed a unique blending of Old World Indian themes and the New World aesthetics of the powerful Catholic Church in Spain.
