Description: New Orleans: University of New Orleans Press, 2018. 28cm., hardcover, 240pp. illus. Exhibition to be held at Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans

Summary: In conjunction with an exhibition at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Salazar: Portraits of Influence in Spanish New Orleans, 1782-1802 tells the story of Yucatn-born Josef Xavier Francisco de Salazar y Mendoza (c. 1750-1802), whose career spanned most of the Spanish administration of New Orleans. This catalogue includes a comprehensive collection of Salazar's portrait paintings and examines his work with essays that explore the historical and artistic implications of the era. Additionally, his oeuvre will be further contextualized in relation to works by other early New Orleans portraitists such as Antonio Meucci, Franois M. Guyol de Guiran (1775-1849) and Louis Collas (1775-1856), whose careers and works are reactive to the city as a site of mobility and transatlantic artistic exchange.
