This museum boasts the country’s greatest collection of artwork related to the Virgin Mary and Our Lady of Guadalupe, a key theme in colonial-era pictorial art. There is work from artists such as Baltasar de Echave Ibía, José de Alcíbar, Juan Correa, and Juan Cordero. Especially noteworthy are the 17th- and 18th-century works of art based on the Nican Mopohua—attributed to the indigenous scholar Antonio Valeriano—which portray the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe surrounded by medallions representing her four appearances to Juan Diego. Some are signed by Miguel Cabrera, Juan Antonio de Arriaga, Francisco Carden, Josefus de Rivera I Argomanis, and more.
The museum’s collection includes polychrome sculpture; marble and ivory sculpture; books; engravings; gold work; furnishings from Mexico, Latin American, and Europe; banners; Gobelin tapestries; vestments; and weavings.
Don’t miss the collection of more than two thousand Exvotos Guadalupanos from the 19th and 20th centuries. These votive offerings convey a clear feeling of Mexican identity and religious ties.Location
