SCARCE MID to LATE 19TH CENTURY LATIN AMERICAN (MEXICO) ANTIQUE 14 1/4" x 10"  RETABLO OIL PAINTING on TIN, DEPICTING THE WINGED ARCHANGEL RAPHAEL, HOLDING a S INGLE FISH by a STRING & GENTLY CLUTCHING a LONG STAFF with a CROSS at its APEX,  featuring ALL ORIGINAL PAINT & SURFACES (Circa 1870-1895)Mid to late 19th century Latin American & Mexican antique retablo figurative oil paintings on tin, with Christian iconography & Biblical themes DIMENSIONS: 14 1/4" Height x 10" WidthWeight: 8.2 oz. DESCRIPTION:Only a few slight, minor to at times moderate surface abrasions, subsequent oxidation and specks of enamel paint loss, mar this otherwise extraordinary mid to late 19th century Latin American (Mexico) antique retablo oil painting of a 'Santo' on tin sheet, depicting the winged archangel Raphael,
wearing a white, laced trimmed wrap (lower skirt) holding a single fish by a string and gently holding a long staff, with a cross at its apex. In very well-preserved overall antique condition, considering it's now nearly, if not,  125 to 155 years old. The retablo painting is still extraordinarily bright, with fairly well-preserved surfaces and almost fully saturated, vivid, bright and nearly undiminished original oil paint. Only the mostly minor to seldom occurring moderate surface abrasions and spotty subsequent oxidation, mar this otherwise extraordinary antiqueLatin American figurative work. These Latin American and usually Mexican antique tin retablo paintings on tin, were fairly omnipresent in 19th century Mexico, with them often being displayed in family shrines inside rural homes. Of course, the influence of Christianity, as brought by the Spaniards to Latin America and easily recognizable Catholic
graphic iconography in particular, are evident. Simply fantastic. One killer  mid to late 19th century Mexican antique retablo oil painting on tin. Absolutely wonderful. CONDITION:Good to Very Good overall antique condition.
