Allegory of the Holy Sacrament

Gift of the Collection of Frederick and Jan Mayer This painting was made in the late 1600s by the New Spanish painter Juan Correa (c. 1645-1716), who signed his name along the lower right edge of the canvas. Together with Cristóbal de Villalpando (c. 1649–1714), Correa is considered to be one of the most important and prolific painters active in mid-colonial Mexico. Born in Mexico City about 1645, Correa was the son of a Spanish-descended surgeon and a freed woman of African descent.
