In conjunction with the Tricentennial celebration of New Orleans, Salazar: Portraits of Influence in Spanish New Orleans tells the story of Josef Francisco Xavier de Salazar y Mendoza (c. 1750-1802), whose career spanned the second half of the Spanish administration of New Orleans. Through a re-examination of about 30 of his most pertinent works, a view of Spanish colonial New Orleans is achieved. His oeuvre is further contextualized in relation to works and other historical artifacts reflective of the city as a site of mobility and transatlantic artistic exchange.
