Unlikely art: Mary à la Warhol in a former convent
In the heart of León, Nicaragua, the Hotel El Convento is located in what used to be the Convento de San Francisco, dating from the 17th century. Refurbished as a hotel in 2000, the lobby is full of colonial art and antiques--but I was a bit surprised to see this pop-art take on Mary (signed by an A. Pérez). León is a profoundly religious city, dotted with churches and frequent processions. This Warhol-inspired tetraptych: unlikely art.
