Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A strong link exists between Caribbean art and its popular culture and religion--such as Voodoo, Santaria, and Rastifarianism, as well as the influence of Trinidad carnival and similar traditions. This wonderfully illustrated survey covers a wide range of artists providing a compelling look at a great body of original and imaginative art. 200 illustrations. 35 in color.

Book News Annotation:

Discusses the diverse work of some 100 Caribbean artists both indigenous and from the diaspora. Encompasses popular and "high" art from rural and urban cultures, and art with politically radical and religious associations. Contains chapters on prehispanic and colonial art, modernism and cultural nationalism, popular religion and the festival arts, anti-imperialism and race consciousness, nature, the self and other, and recent developments. Art from some 20 countries is represented in high-quality color and b&w illustrations. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
