If you appreciate fine art, you’ll love perusing the countless paintings in the artisan markets of Lima. There are some recurring themes throughout a lot of the art, but you can find virtually any style at any price level, and own an authentic, one of a kind piece of artwork from Peru. Some of the most popular Peruvian paintings are of Peruvian children in traditional dress, women in the rural areas with their long braids and hats, and landscapes of Machu Picchu and the Amazon. But there are also very realistic composition pieces, modern black and whites, and just about any other style you could wish for. If you buy a large piece you can have the canvas wrapped up for easy traveling – we did this with several pieces on a recent trip.
