Basilio Santa Cruz Pumacallao

Basilio Santa Cruz de Pumacallao (16351710) Basilio Santa Cruz De Pumacallao. Artnet. (retrieved 21 June 2009) was a Quechua painter from Cusco, Peru. He was part of the Cuzco School, a colonial movement of indigenous painters educated in the Baroque religious painting tradition of Spain.

His work also still stands in Convento de San Francisco del Cusco and includes "Series of the life of Saint Francis", in which only the last picture is signed by the artist. It is dated 1667. The Iglesia de la Merced has Santa Cruz's "Martyrdom of Saint Laurence," a painting with angels in the style of Spanish painter Bartolome Esteban Murillo. Basilio Santa Cruz de Pumacallao created iconographies of arcabuceros, that is, angels with muzzle-loaded firearms, so characteristic of the Cuzco School and so different from the angels imagined in Europe at the same time.
