In the 17th century, artistic production thrived in Santa Fe de Bogotá, the commercial hub of the Spanish Viceroyalty of New Granada and the birthplace of painter Gregorio Vázquez de Arce y Ceballos. With a workshop that included his brother, daughter, and son, he produced more than 500 paintings and drawings in his 40-year career. He became famous for his decoration of religious institutions, including the Sagrario Chapel in Bogotá.
In the 1920s and 1930s, indigenism emerged as an intellectual trend in the work of Latin American artists, with monumental paintings denouncing the political and economic exploitation of Native American populations. Ecuadorian artist Camilo Egas tied class-consciousness to images of Ecuador’s native inhabitants as a form of vanguard social activism.
