Medicine & the Arts | Poster

Painting of two doctors attending to a patientEveryday  Miracles: Medical Imagery in Ex-Votos

Ex-votos are small devotional paintings that give thanks to a saint or deity. The faithful, when they perceive their prayers for miracles had been answered, would commission local artists to paint ex-votos as an expression of thanks and gratitude. The tradition of ex-votos began in Italy during the 1400s, spread to the New World a century later, and is still active today. Everyday Miracles: Medical Imagery in Ex-Votos explores the history and practice of ex-votos in Italy and Mexico.
