A la manera de Lazcarro is the first major exhibition of a Poblano artist at the International Museum of the Baroque, which explores an area of the artist's extensive work from 43 pieces that denote a particular ways of doing of the painter José Lazcarro Toquero.
Moon, Sun, Duality
17 women painters recreate the Moon
17 men painters recreate the Sun
Picking up again the syncretism between the pre-Columbian and baroque symbologies, the painters give us their own vision of the Moon and the Sun. The aesthetic thinking that brought the birth of our culture to fruition is transferred to the personal iconography of these artists.
The Divine Comedy
The illustration of the Divine Comedy was commissioned to Salvador Dali by
the Italian Government on the occasion of the 700th anniversary of the birth
of the poet Dante Alighieri. The collection consists of 100 engravings where
it is divided into three parts: Hell, Purgatory and Paradise.
The International Museum of the Baroque would like to thank the Fundación
Universitaria Iberoamericana in the development of this exhibition.
What does Baroque mean to us? Is there a single definition? When did it arise? What are its general characteristics? Is it the same everywhere or are there regional differences? What is Neobaroque?
A multisensory experience raises the curtain to introduce us to the great theatre of the world: the Baroque world.
Puebla de los Ángeles
Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, Baroque culture developed in wide-ranging and far-away geographies. It inspired the design of cities with distinctive features, although they were immersed in ongoing cultural and commercial exchange between Europe, the Americas, and Asia.
A monumental model reveals why Puebla was one of the most remarkable stages in this cosmopolitan world of remarkable Baroque cities.
The Baroque Feeling: Architecture
El Sentimiento Barroco: Arquitectura
The thought and aspirations of Baroque society were materialized in an innovative vision of the city and architectural forms. Spacious plazas and gardens, as well as buildings with vibrant facades that led to exuberant interiors became the grand stage for Baroque society.
The New Order of the Times: Painting and Sculpture
The Baroque universe saw the materialization of its deepest concerns and convictions in images of intense emotionalism and great intimacy.
Paintings and sculptures were transformed into powerful didactic platforms for symbolic, moral, religious, and political content.
The Allegories of Knowledge: Letters and Sciences
What did people read and what was written in Baroque times?
Baroque sensibility, mentality, and concerns left a decisive mark on literature, science, and philosophy, occasionally provoking heated tensions between burgeoning modern science and religious theories.
Entertaining and Moving: Theatre, Costume and the Decorative Arts
Theatre was tantamount to an echo of the Baroque world, not only in terms of literary creation and performance, but also through the artifice of stage sets, costumes, and special effects.
Attire, interior settings from daily life, and ceremonial performances were crucial in a society where each individual played a role.
Artifices of the Ear: Music and Dance
Music was a source of pleasure, an expression of virtuosity, a path for communication with heavenly entities, based on discourse and drama. Progress in technology applied to instruments went hand in hand with the development of Baroque music and dance, creating methods and forms still present today.
