About this product
- DescriptionRichly illustrated with examples of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century art from rthern New Mexico's village churches, Santos is an in-depth investigation into the artistic heritage of the New Mexican santero (saint maker). It is also an important study of rthern New Mexican artisans and their craft. Along with photographer Jack Parsons, Marie Romero Cash visited every church in the region and documented, identified, and measured each santos. Together they photographed more than 500 pieces, including 19 moradas (places of worship for Penitentes) and the Archdiocese of Santa Fe Collection housed at the Museum of International Folk Art. Cash's extensive research into these formerly anymous artisans fills a gap in the study of this unique form, making Santos indispensable for art historians and the general reader interested in the culture and art of the American Southwest.
- Author BiographyMarie Romero Cash is a native of Santa Fe and a nationally known folk artist/santera. She has lectured and written widely on the subject of the New Mexican santero and the traditions and cultures of northern New Mexico.
