Art of Colonial Latin America (Art & Ideas)

by

Art of Colonial Latin America (Art & Ideas) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Covers the period (1492-1820) of Spanish and Portuguese colonial influence on the art and architecture of South Amerika as well as the southwest United States. Reveals the rich results on all art forms of the mixing of colonial and indigenous cultures: paintings, sculptures, architecture, textiles, furniture and ceramics.

Book News Annotation:

Bailey (art history, Clark U., Worcester, Mass.) has done a commendable job of presenting in a concise format a readable and coherent overview of the issues, contexts, and history that surround the vast field of colonial art and architecture throughout Latin America. Chapters present discussion of the European models that influenced colonial forms, the indigenous response to colonization, the forms of imperialism, the guilds and academies for art, major church architecture, and arts of the aristocracy. A (brief) final chapter alludes to the artistic impact of the Iberian presence in Asia and Africa.
