The moneyed elite of New Spain loved beautiful, decadent clothing—as in this 1752 portrait by Miguel Cabrera of Don Juan Xavier Joachín Gutiérrez Altamirano Velasco, the Count of Santiago de Calimaya. See the story "New Money in New Spain," about the Brooklyn Museum’s exhibition “Behind Closed Doors: Art in the Spanish American Home, 1492–1898."
