First published in 1974, this study of religious paintings on tin -- an art that flourished in Mexico in the nineteenth century -- has never been surpassed. It remains an important resource for folk art scholars and enthusiasts both. This revised edition includes the most current information on the iconography of the saints. The first part of the book is given to an analysis of folk retablo painting and includes a study of the materials employed by folk artists, how and they painted, a classification of their productions and the extent of this art form in both space and time. The second part concentrates on iconography and on which certain images of Christ, Mary and the saints were venerated. The third part examines ex-votos, small images painted to commemorate the donor's gratitude for a particular favour or miracle. The text is superbly illustrated with colour plates and detailed descriptions and commentaries on each image.
