The Maritime face of Santo Domingo. The new towns

The conquering of America was a result of the expansion of European society, protected by the scientific culture stemming from the Renaissance, and affected by religious splits, although still aware of its role in consolidating the elements of an incipient capitalism. Spain projected the impulse to expel “the Moors” to the new territories, as a consequence of the Crusades, which unified European territories in the name of God (Germany, France and other kingdoms and regions, who became allies of Spain for reasons of faith)


  Dominican Painters

The cultural legacy of painting in the Dominican Republic expresses visions and sensations, paying homage to the influences of generations of many years of history.

The painter’s palette becomes an instrument for the protagonists of the art to express their identity from a racial and from a geographical point of view. Two dictatorships, those of Francisco Franco in Spain and Rafael Leonidas Trujillo in the Dominican Republic, were to define what was to precede and follow with the events that shook the artistic communities of the Dominican Republic.

  Typical Dominican characters

This Virtual Gallery is basically set up to show typical characters often seen everyday on the streets and avenues of Santo Domingo and the rest of the Dominican Republic. From the street sellers selling candy, fruit, vegetables, and imitation jewellery, among other things, we arrive at those who sell balloons in Colón Park in the Colonial Zone, prawns, potatoes and cashew fruit on the Duarte Highroad which connects the capital with the North and all kinds of arts and crafts, as well as works of arts and flowers.

It is a real journey though the Dominican Republic, and a means to get closer to its people and the many and varied forms through which people in the Dominican Republic earn their daily bread.
