Visions of Empire: Picturing the Conquest in Colonial Mexico Visions of Empire:
Picturing the Conquest in Colonial Mexico


The exhibition Visions of Empire: Picturing the Conquest in Colonial Mexico provides, for the first time in the United States, a venue for a group of important historical paintings documenting the conquest of a new territory – the Americas. This exhibition, which also includes selected Aztec artworks, illustrates the presence of a culturally rich pre-conquest society. It was the mixture of European and native cultures that ultimately created the culture we now know as Mexican.
