Following Latin America’s independence from colonial rule, artists who had once created only colonial and religious art became interested in depicting the patriotic heroes and leaders of the revolution.

As photography had not been invented in Bolívar’s lifetime, there is no photographic image to reflect his likeness.  However, Bolivar was frequently portrayed in stone and paint, sometimes sketched from life but often copied after prints or earlier paintings. This imagery, the Bolivarian iconography, has gone on to play an important historical role, both expressing a sense of the identity of the man who liberated Latin America and also helping to consolidate the national identity of the newly liberated republics.  

You are cordially invited to attend a drink reception
