Mexican art


Mexican art developed through a wide variety of visual arts that had a marked influence from indigenous people, pre-Hispanic architecture, and religion. During the colonial period, artistic production was directly associated with the European tradition, but the artists' guilds maintained certain indigenous elements in the painting, to evoke a balance between the mixture of European and indigenous traditions.

For example, in the case of caste paintings, these were essential in revealing the racial mixture that was being generated in New Spain in the 18th century. These paintings not only showed the rigin of the new castes but also served to create a social classification system by the Spanish Empire.
