Excited to be installing "Power & Piety: Spanish Colonial Art," opening to the public this Saturday! This gorgeous exhibition features 56 paintings, sculpture, silver pieces, furniture, and other devotional objects.
These mid-18th century doors are made of carved and painted wood. They are great examples of Churrigueresque (Spanish Baroque style brought to the New World) architecture elements. This is reflected in the organic details – deeply carved shells, swags, fruits, flowers and acanthus scrolls. #TextureTuesday#SpanishColonialArt#DenverArtMuseum || Pair of doors.
