Public Lecture by Mark A. Castro, Philadelphia Museum of Art

Thursday 4/19, 6-7 pm, Library Tower South, AUM “Inspired Invention: Compositional Strategies in Cristóbal de Villalpando's Antigua Series,” a guest lecture by Mark A. Castro, Consulting Curator for Latin American Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art. Funding kindly provided by the Department of Fine Arts and the AUM Lecture Committee. Abstract: Cristóbal de Villalpando's painting cycle depicting the life of Saint Francis of Assisi, made for a Franciscan Convent in Antigua, Guatemala, offers a glimpse of the strategies employed by the Mexican Baroque master for developing new compositions that met the political and spiritual sensibilities of his Franciscan patrons. Painting cycles of this type have long been seen as static objects, restricted by the biographies of their subject and drawing heavily on established European print series. Villalpando's paintings instead demonstrate that there was significant creative leeway within which a painter could develop his program, drawing on a variety of types of source material to create canvases that had contemporary implications for the Franciscans in Antigua. About the Speaker: Mark A. Castro is an art historian who specializes in Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin American art and has worked for the European Paintings & Sculpture Department at the Philadelphia Museum of Art since 2007. He has curated numerous exhibitions on Spanish, Spanish Colonial, and Latin American Art, and has published widely on this material. His 2016 major loan exhibition: “Paint the Revolution: Mexican Modernism, 1910- 1950,” traveled to Houston and Mexico City, after its inaugural installation in Philadelphia, was well reviewed by major publications including the New York Times, and was accompanied by a catalogue published by Yale University Press. Previous permanent collection and major touring exhibitions Castro has curated or provided curatorial assistance for include: “El Greco In Focus,” “Journeys to New Worlds: Spanish and Portuguese Colonial Art in the Roberta and Richard Huber Collection,” “Mediterranean Spain: Art from the Crown of Aragon,” and “Treasures: The Arts in Latin America 1492-1820.” His current research focuses on painting cycles depicting the life of Saint Francis of Assisi produced for Franciscan Institutions in New Spain.
