José de Ibarra (1685–1756) was a Mexican painter, born in San Miguel El Grande, Oaxaca, and died 21 Nov 1756 in Mexico City, in the Viceroyalty of New Spain (Colonial México).[1]

He was a mixed-race Afro-Mexican, but was considered a Spaniard and listed in the 1753 Mexico City census as Spaniard.[2] Ibarra was student of painter Juan Correa, who self-identified as a mulatto.

Career[edit]

Ibarra's career was marked with support of initiatives to protect the intellectual integrity of painting as an art form.[3] He was influenced by contemporaries Cristóbal de Villalpando and Juan Rodríguez Juárez.[3] His remains are interred at the Church of Santa Inés in Mexico City.[4]

Many of Ibarra's pieces are preserved in Mexican museums and the Metropolitan Cathedral in Mexico City.[5] He was one of the most prolific painters of his day, producing mainly religious paintings for the cathedrals of Mexico.[3]
