Andrea Tejada Farfán, Exploratory Travel Awardee

Andrea Giuliana Tejada Farfán received an Exploratory Travel Award in March 2021 to further her dissertation research in the Art of the Spanish Americas. She is in her first year of doctoral work in art history and curatorial studies at Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú. Her research field is focused on Viceroyalty Art of XVI and XVII centuries, specifically on the Jesuit painter Bernardo Bitti. Her work explores a catalogue of the Jesuit painter Bernardo Bitti (Camerino, 1548- Lima, 1610) to clarify the artist’s impact in the Peruvian Viceroyalty and to better comprehend his creative processes and the link that he stablished with his collaborators and followers in Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador.
