[sold] Original miniature paintings of various Saints from the Cusco school, Peru. These postcard-sized oils on canvas (shipped canvas only, no stretcher, no frame) are some of the tiniest examples of Cusco painting, which more typically deals with dramatic images of various Saints on a larger scale. Nothing is lost in the smaller size however, as the colors and shading are rich and nuanced. The faces are still very expressive, though they are no larger than your fingertip. All are highlighted with bold overlays of gold paint, customary of the Cusco school. Peru.45
