Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There is astonishingly little literature in English on painting in the Viceroyalty of Peru. Published in association with the Cantor Center for Visual Arts, this exhibition catalogue explores a little known aspect of the history of art that is increasingly appreciated for its energy and originality.Although the initial impetus for paintings in South America was provided by artists who came from Europe, they were soon outnumbered by natives who become proficient in decorating churches and public buildings. The 56 paintings—never previously published—in the Thoma Collection offer an accurate and compelling survey of the diverse schools of painting that developed in the vast regions of the Viceroyalty which yielded the present day countries of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Colombia, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Argentina.Exhibition schedule: Cantor Center for Visual Arts, Stanford University September 20-December 31, 2006

Book News Annotation:

Published in conjunction with the 2006 exhibition of the same name and organized by the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford U., this catalog of the Thoma Collection at the university features paintings from South America when it was part of the Spanish Empire from 1600 to 1825. Each painting in the catalog is accompanied by a description. The first section of the volume contains essays by art scholars from the US, Japan, Peru, and Canada, who discuss cultural transfer, religious imagination, figurative art and visual culture in the Viceroyalty of Peru, and Andean colonial art. The catalog is the first of its kind in English. It measures 10x11.5". Distributed by Rizzoli. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
