Footnotes

  • José Campeche y Jordán is the first known Puerto Rican visual artist and widely regarded as one of the best Rococo artists in the Americas. Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, his father, Tomás, who was a freed slave, was a restorer and painter of religious statues and was an early influence on the young Campeche's interest in the arts. Campeche was trained by Luis Paret y Alcázar, the celebrated Rococo Spanish court painter who was banished to Puerto Rico.
