About the Artist
(1760 - 1799)
Fray Andrés García, a Franciscan friar who served at a number of New Mexican churches in the late eighteenth century, was born in 1720 at Puebla de los Angeles in Mexico. García has been credited with producing several santos that are still in the churches where he served. He appears to have worked tirelessly to produce interior furnishings and artwork wherever he served.
