Continuing its focused, thematic exhibitions from the retablos permanent collection the El Paso Museum of Art announces the exhibition Saint Joseph on view in the Roderick Retablo Niche Gallery from December 2nd, 2012 through April 21st, 2013. Known to many as Christ’s surrogate father, Saint Joseph has been historically depicted in art as a haloed or crowned member of the holy family. The seventeen retablos included in this exhibition examine the traditional iconography of color, costume and pose as well as the attributes with which the saint has been portrayed. Shown exclusively in close contact with the Christ child in several creative variations influenced by local traditions Saint Joseph’s role as Christ’s guardian is a recurring, significant feature.
