A Visit to the Art Institute of Chicago to the special exhibition "Doctrine and Devotion: Art of the Religious Orders of the Spanish Andes."

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Presenting 13 paintings by South American artists from the 17th through 19th century, this focused exhibition introduces visitors to images promoted by several Catholic orders at work in the Spanish Andes—the Dominicans, Franciscans, Mercedarians, and Jesuits—examining the politics of the distinct iconographies each group developed as they vied for devotees and dominion.
