Thoughts Of Love In 1700s Puerto Rico
I believe that this art work is unique, as few, if any, artists do works of art on the theme of Spanish Colonial Puerto Rico ( Puerto Rico is still a colony as now it is part of the U.S.A). The painting takes place in the 1700's, and the man studying is having difficulty concentrating because he is thinking of his beloved. During the time that this painting takes place Puerto Rico was still a scarcely populated island. It was after the 1820's that many people started coming to Puerto Rico because the king of Spain granted free land to anyone who would settle.
Most of my family came relatively late from Spain (within the last 100 years), so when this painting takes place they were still in Spain.
Puerto Rico at that time was not very developed, and it was really only in the capital, San Juan, that goods could really be found.
