Andres Lopez

(active 1777 - 1812)
Son of the painter Carlos Clemente López and contemporary of Jose de Alcíbar, he was part of the generation of followers of the work of Miguel Cabrera, but in turn was very influenced by the academicism novohispano of the transition of century XVIII to XIX. He is associated with the academy of the brothers Nicolás and Juan Rodríguez Juárez. He worked with his brother Cristobal, with whom he made the murals of the Temple of the Lord of the Encino in Aguascalientes. He was follower of Miguel Cabrera and the author of the guadalupana image that served as standard to gift Miguel Hidalgo and Costilla in 1810, when summoning to the town of Dolores to initiate the war of independence.
