Abstract: The presence and circulation of cultural goods of the Southern Netherlands within the
Hispanic world is a fascinating subject with several possibilities for researchers:16 graphic
material – printed or manuscript – such as books, woodcuts and engravings, as well as
paintings, tapestries, sculptures and textiles exported from Antwerp found their way to
the New World via Seville, the gateway to America, where many Flemish artists and printers
lived and worked. Today, many examples of books from the Southern Netherlands,
artistic objects or replicas can still be admired in Latin American libraries, museums,
churches and convents in situ from Mexico to Bolivia
