Category:Casta paintings

Casta paintings (created as sets of consecutive images) portray detailed racial classifications resulting from intermixing among the main groups that inhabited the colonies of the Spanish Empire: Indians, Spaniards, and Africans. The first-order classifications are "mestizo" (offspring of European and Indian), "mulatto" (offspring of European and Black), and "zambo" (offspring of Black and Indian), but there can be many further sub-classifications and racial niches.
