A stylistically similar example: Workshop of the González brothers. Saint John the Evangelist, end of the 17th to the start of the 18th century. Mother-of-pearl inlay on wooden panel. Soumaya Museum (Museo Soumaya), Mexico

Catalog Note: This enconchado (shell inlay) painting comes from an artistic tradition that flourished in Mexico from 1650 to 1750. Inspired by Asian trade goods, painters seamlessly incorporated pieces of mother-of-pearl into their compositions, the reflective qualities of mother-of-pearl, especially when lit by candlelight, gave these works unparalleled luminosity.
