Anunciacion or La Virgen leyendo (1621). Baltazar Echave Orio (Spanish, 1540-1624). Museo Andrés Blaisten, Cdad. de México.

Echave arrived in New Spain sometime before 1582, the year he married Isabel de Ibía, daughter of painter Francisco de Zumaya. Echave apparently began to paint only after his arrival in New Spain, where he studied with his father-in-law.
