The Art of Mesoamerica, Fourth Edition (World of Art)

by

The Art of Mesoamerica, Fourth Edition (World of Art) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mary Ellen Miller evocatively surveys the artistic achievements of the high pre-Columbian civilizations—Olmec, Maya, Teotihuacan, Toltec, Aztecas well as those of their less well-known contemporaries. Their pyramids and palaces, jades and brightly colored paintings emerge from these pages as vividly as when they first astonished Cortes's men in 1519.

The fourth edition of this standard work includes exciting new discoveries, from Palenque, Mexico, where architecture and sculpture reveal a dramatic eighth century, to San Bartolo, Guatemala, where Maya paintings have riveted an international audience. Continuing hieroglyphic decipherments provide fresh insights. The revised edition of the Art of Mesoamerica is the ideal companion for art historians, students, and travelers alike.

Synopsis:

"An essential guide to the art and architecture of ancient Central America."—Colonial Latin American Historical Review
