Representations of Women in Casta Paintings of Colonial Mexico an unknown treasure in rajasthan the bundi wall paintings
Representations of Women in Casta Paintings of Colonial Mexico explores the power relations between men and women represented in casta paintings created during the eighteenth century in New Spain. Lacie Glover provides an overview of the genre of casta painting and its relation to the sistema de castas, the hierarchal social arrangement based on lineages intended to sustain the power of the Spanish elite. The author examines how casta scenes reinforce the authority of the Spanish male. In addition, the social construction of gender, separate spheres of men and women, and the notion of "true womanhood" are recurrent themes. Glover suggests that casta scenes reinforced the expected norms of female behavior. Furthermore, social codes of conduct varied by class, and Glover argues that elite white women are portrayed as ideal women adhering to acceptable standards of behavior in contrast to mixed-race women, who are often depicted working as food vendors (considered lower class) or displaying violent behavior. By focusing on gender, this book provides a new perspective on this subject, enriching our knowledge of societal values and the life experiences of women in colonial Mexico.

Taner Ceylan: The Lost Paintings an unknown treasure in rajasthan the bundi wall paintings
Well known for his provocative realist paintings, Taner Ceylan (born 1967) began his Lost Paintings Series as a contemporary exploration of the Orientalist gaze. Upsetting both Western and Eastern master narratives, the Lost Paintings Series presents Eastern figures in a fascinating navigation of history, power and narrative. "Esma Sultan," Ceylan's depiction of an eighteenth-century Ottoman princess renowned for her cruel disposition, draws on the empowering mythology of passionate, ruthless and assertive womanhood that characterizes accounts of her life. In other works, an Ottoman man gazes defiantly, cigarette in hand; a pair of male lovers give a chaste farewell; a veiled woman stands before Courbet's "L'Origine du monde." Ceylan assembles a cast of lost characters and voices that embody the many silenced by both Orientalist and official nationalist histories. The book is published on the occasion of Ceylan's exhibition The Lost Paintings Series at the Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York.
