Juan Patricio Morlete Ruiz’s Portrait of Doña Tomasa Durán López de Cárdenas (detail), c. 1762.Photographer: Rafael Doniz

April 24–July 22

In a show that first appeared at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 2017 as part of Los Angeles’a “Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA,” which explored Latin American art throughout the city, this show, a collection of more than 100 artworks, will travel to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art next year. Put in the context of the Met’s prodigious collection of European masterworks of the same period, the show will take on new importance as questions of colonialism, international exchange, and art history are put in stark and fascinating relief.
