  • Cruz de las Animas
  • Late 19th Century Original Retablo Oil Painting on Tin created in Mexico.
  • Retablo dimensions are approx. 10 inches horizontal x 14 inches vertical.
  • Condition: in excellent, clean, original condition with some minor paint loss acquired over more than a century of use and devotional prayer.
  • Note from Brian: An early purchase from my beloved friend, scholar and Master Dealer, James Caswell of Historia Antiques. This wonderful Folk Retablo has a surface burnish from years or decades in front of devotional candles receiving the prayers and requests of petitioners. There is a similar example by the same artist in Saints and Sinners. A highly important resource for anyone interested in Mexican Retablo Art.
