Joslyn Art Museum's small but notable collection of Spanish colonial art reflects the influence of Spanish missionaries on indigenous artists in the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries, particularly in Mexico and Bolivia. Joslyn's holdings, including an Our Lady of Guadalupe retablo and a travelling scroll by José María Hernández, exemplify the Spanish Colonial style—a combination of European-influenced compositions and Christian symbolism with traditional indigenous imagery.
