Mexican Votive Painting and the Miracle of Everyday Life

A fellowship is requested for the research and writing of a book-length study on painted Mexican votive offerings (known as retablos) and the cultural context in which they are commissioned, produced, offered, displayed, and viewed. The focus is on retablos as extraordinary works of folk art; as components of a complex of beliefs, rituals, and material culture that constitute Mexican expressions of popular Catholicism; as archives of social history; and as indices of a belief system that is conducive to miraculous intercession in everyday life.
