Crowned nuns as some of the most popular painting genres in viceregal American territories, specially on trend during the 18th century. Family members used to commission protraits of their daughters, who were to become nuns as a memento before saying googbye forever. When she took her vows she would not be out of the cloister under any circumstance. A second occassion in which nuns would be portrayed again crowned with flowers would be if they gained recognition during their life in the convent.
