COLLECTION

The European art holdings from the fourteenth to early twentieth centuries in the National Museum of San Carlos since 1968 are one of the most important in Latin America. They originated in the collection begun at the end of the eighteenth century in the Royal Academy of the Three Noble Arts of San Carlos of New Spain and that in the early nineteenth century was complemented by works by the institution’s teachers as well as by students during their journeys to study art in Italy and works presented to receive their academic credentials. In this period, other works from private collections also joined the collection from the Academy of San Lucas in Rome and from convents and monasteries that were forced to close.
