Welcome to the National Museum of Mexican Art’s new website!
During 19th Century Mexico, an artistic tradition of home worship that flourished was the retablo and ex-voto – devotional religious paintings on tin. This exhibition examines the popularization of the retablo and ex-voto tradition in its artistic, social, political, and religious contexts.
