Nuestra Senora de la Salud de Patzcuaro 1


  • Represents ‘Nuestra Señora de la Salud de Patzcuaro’
  • Rare 19th century retablo
  • Only a handful of examples are known to exist
  • Inscribed: ‘un de exigo inde salus’
  • Available in Museum Quality Paper and Canvas


Not to be confused with ‘La Virgen Ampona’, nor ‘Nuestra Señora de San Juan de los Lagos’, this exceedingly rare 19th century Mexican folk retablo represents ‘Nuestra Señora de la Salud de Patzcuaro’. This subject is almost always misattributed, and only a handful of correctly attributed examples are known to exist, including the one offered here.

The inscription along lower edge offers clarity. The inscription: ‘un de exigo inde salus’, which translates loosely to: ‘if you seek you will receive health’.
