"De lo europeo a lo hispanoamericano" : origines, fondements théoriques et pratiques de la peinture dans les Andes coloniales (XVIe-XVIIIe siècle)

Abstract : This thesis aims to analyse the way pictorial practices of the colonial Andes are formed and dissolved around a “European matter”. The nature of a painting complies with occidental political requirements (the evangelisation of the Indigenous) but its function will be progressively “dismembered” in favour of a painting which is becoming Americanised. The regional dimension being one of the factors of these changes, we will first study the artistic context of Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries. Through the study of its practices and also its human and material transfers in the Peruvian viceroyalty, we can thereafter judge of the differences, the innovations, but also the transgressions of the artworks made on site. The mediators of this circulation, the social actors and the carriers of new codes, redefine the qualities of the Indian painter who put a definitive end to his condition of “labour” to become an independent artist. While we could be led to believe that Spain refuses the Americanisation of this form of painting, yet the theoretical foundations of Western art are at the starting point of forms and new themes which essentially characterise Andean’s 18th century. The adoption of a European iconographic system, mostly by mixed-race and Indian painters, paradoxically allows the reapropriation of a medium used for a long time by the Spanish authorities, as an object of domination, submission, and control.
