Publisher Comments:

In this uniquely wide-ranging book, David Craven investigates the extraordinary impact of three Latin American revolutions on the visual arts and on cultural policy. He discusses the upheavals in Mexico (1910-1940), in Cuba (1959-1989), and in Nicaragua (1979-1990) and assesses their legacies, demonstrating how the revolutions' consequences reverberated in arts and cultures far beyond their own borders.

"An ambitious book, weaving political, economic, and a broad swath of cultural phenomena into the analysis of works of visual art."—Art Journal

"[A] wonderfully intricate book on a seldom discussed topic."—Library Journal

"Destined to become a classic in the field."—Arte en Colombia
