Jean Charlot is known as one of the world's foremost pictorial authorities on the Spanish Conquest of Mexico. His drawings for "Our Lady of Guadalupe" are faithful in detail and feeling to the time and the people he portrays, and their rich color glows with the effect of light falling through stained-glass windows. - dustjacket flap.
