Gaspar Miguel de Berrio
(c. 1706 - c. 1762)
Gaspar Miguel de Berrio (c. 1706 - c. 1762) was a painter, representative of the American Baroque, who worked in Potosí, Viceroyalty of Peru, in Alto Perú, present-day Bolivia. He is cataloged as one of the main exponents of the School of Potosí, after Melchor Pérez de Holguín, of whom he would have been a disciple. His work combines religious themes, echoes of Spanish gloom, the use of gold leaf and the realization of landscapes of his city.
