A stunning richly colored lithograph by this important artist. This work depicts, El Santuario de Chimayó, a Roman Catholic church in Chimayó, New Mexico, United States. (Santuario is Spanish for "sanctuary".) This shrine, a National Historic Landmark, is famous for the story of its founding and as a contemporary pilgrimage site. It receives almost 300,000 visitors per year, and has been called "no doubt the most important Catholic pilgrimage center in the United States."
In very good condition; the work is unframed, but held in its original matting, so it ships flat and is ready to be re-framed.
