These three works belong to a set of casta paintings by Juan Patricio Morlete Ruiz that originally had sixteen scenes (over time many sets have been disassembled). Each scene depicts a family group with parents of different races and one of their children. During the colonial period Indians, Spaniards born in Spain as well as the New World (the latter known as Creoles), and Africans brought over as slaves all populated Mexico. The result was that a large percentage of the population became mixed, known collectively as castas (or "castes" in English), from where the pictorial genre derives its name.

Casta paintings were largely produced for a European audience to classify and create order out of an increasingly mixed society. This is especially important because in Europe there existed the widespread idea that all the inhabitants of the Americas (regardless of race) were degraded hybrids, which called into question the purity of blood of Spaniards and their ability to rule the colony's subjects. Casta painting responded to this anxiety by constructing a view of an orderly society bound by love (hence the use of the familial metaphor), but one that was hierarchically arranged and that featured Spaniards at the top.

Morlete Ruiz situates the mixed couples in elaborate landscape settings and pays careful attention to the figures' clothing and attributes. For example, some Spanish men hold a sword—a privilege that in colonial legislation was only reserved for this group—while some women sport a manga, a cape that resembles an inverted skirt fit from the head, worn exclusively by women of African descent (it was adapted from a similar garment worn by Moorish women in Spain).

In addition to presenting a typology of human races, occupations, and dress, casta paintings picture the New World as a land of boundless natural wonder through precise renderings of native products, flora, and fauna. Morlete Ruiz's works include an assortment of local fruits such as avocados and prickly pears (tunas). Products like these underscored the colonists' pride in the diversity and prosperity of the colony, and at the same time they fulfilled Europe's curiosity about the "exoticism" of the New World. In addition, they reflect the popularity of classificatory theories introduced by the Enlightenment and the interest in natural history.

Pick your product material

In the dropdown lists next to the product offering you can select your individual size and material. You can choose your favorite size and material between the following alternatives:

  • Printed poster on canvas material: The Artprinta poster print is a UV printed flat cotton canvas with a slightly rough surface finish. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the poster we add a white margin of approximately 2-6cm around the print motif, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • The acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): A glossy acrylic glass print, which is often labelled as a print on plexiglass, will convert your favorite original work of art into magnificient décor. Moreover, it forms a viable alternative to aluminium and canvas art prints. With an acrylic glass art print contrasts and artwork details will be more visible thanks to the subtle tonal gradation in the print.
  • Canvas print: The printed canvas, not to be confused with an artwork painted on a canvas, is a digital replica printed on an industrial printing machine. Besides, printed canvas makes a homelike and positive feeling. How do I hang a canvas on the wall? The advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which implies that it is easy and straightforward to hang your Canvas print without the support of any wall-mounts. Therefore, a canvas print is suitable for all kinds of walls.
  • Metal print (aluminium dibond): Aluminium Dibond prints are metal prints with a true effect of depth - for a modern impression and non-reflective surface structure. The Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is the excellent introduction to fine reproductions produced on aluminum. For our Aluminium Dibond print, we print the artpiece onto the surface of the white-primed aluminum. The white and bright sections of the work of art shimmer with a silk gloss, however without glow.
