13th-14th c. Mexican Panel Painting

As part of a series on recent acquisitions at LACMA, Virginia Fields blogs about Mexican panel painting from the Oaxaca/Guerrero region.  About the LACMA panel Fields writes: "Its palette of strong primary colors and the prominent use of step-fret imagery throughout its composition... identify it as an extraordinary example of the artistic tradition referred to as the International Style, which dominated Mesoamerica during the Late Postclassic period (AD 1200–1400)."
