It's Not Just Machu Picchu: Recovering Peru's Spanish Colonial Heritage

This exciting program, with speakers from the worlds of academia, law, government and law enforcement, highlights the resurgent interest in Spanish Colonial painting on the part of collectors, museums and academia, and Peru's interest in recovering paintings that have been stolen from its churches. Several recent recoveries have been made with the help of a photographic inventory of Spanish Colonial paintings in the churches of Cuzco, Peru that was created by IFAR in the 1980s at the request of the Peruvian government.

NB. Thomas Mulhall will be accompanied by ICE Special Agents Lennis Barrois and Brenton Easter
