From the end of the 16th century until the end of the 18th century, the painters of the Cusqueña School had two stages: the first was eminently religious and the second one of a more varied theme.

Cusco had become the axis of a prosperous center of artistic production, managing to produce huge quantities of paintings and sculptures that exported to the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata, to the Captaincy General of Chile and to the cities of Alto Peru (now Bolivia) , the same ones that are currently exhibited in museums and private homes.

Within the collections of the Regional Historical Museum there are those whose theme is of historiographical content, these paintings have as their main characteristic an iconographic content of signs, symbols, attributes, emblems, allegory, among others, which give it a peculiarity of great importance within its historical content.
