The Cuzco School played a fundamental role in the representation of religious figures such as Santiago Matamoros and Santiago Mataindios. This school of painting created a corpus of works that reflected European and indigenous influences, giving rise to a unique fusion of styles and themes.
In the artistic production of the Cuzqueña School, it is interesting to note that both Santiago Matamoros and Santiago Mataindios were represented with equal emphasis and symbolism. While the image of Santiago Matamoros, the warrior saint, emphasized the role of conquest and struggle in evangelization, the depiction of Santiago Mataindios reflected the idea of peaceful coexistence and conversion of indigenous people.
This book is a proposal for art lovers, history scholars and those seeking to explore the cultural roots of the Viceroyalty of Peru. The Cuzqueña School illuminates the way to a time when art was a bridge between the divine and the earthly, and invites us to appreciate the mastery of the painters of the Cuzqueña School, whose legacy endures in every stroke and every pigment that still adorns the walls and altarpieces of this historic city.
