Juan Correa (1646–1716) was a Mexican painter of mixed Moorish or African, Indian and Spanish heritage. His years of greatest activity were from 1671 to 1716. He painted many religious-themed, Baroque paintings for cathedrals in Mexico. Correa was José de Ibarra's teacher. Correa, along with contemporaries Miguel Cabrera and Cristóbal de Villalpando are important examples of 18th century Mexican Baroque painting.[1][2]
