Overview

Mary Miller succinctly and evocatively surveys the artistic achievements of the high Precolumbian civilizations -- Olmec, Maya, Teotihuacan, Toltec, Aztec -- as 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.

For the third edition of this standard work, Professor Miller opens up new windows on the ancient past with fresh readings of Mesoamerican works of art, all the while offering careful archaeological interpretations. Recent hieroglyphic decipherments provide insights into ancient works, confirming the connections between the Maya and their neighbors. Revised throughout, with special attention to evidence for dating, the revised Art of Mesoamerica is the ideal companion for art historians, students and travelers alike.

Editorial Reviews

Archaeology Odyssey
A stunning array of pre-Columbian art.... belongs in every Central American traveler's suitcase and art history student's backpack.
Colonial Latin American Historical Review
An essential guide to the art and architecture of ancient Central America.
Library Journal
This third edition of a noted pre-Columbian art history book will satisfy various types of readers, including travelers, armchair archaeologists, museum goers, and art history students. Inspired by new discoveries in archaeology and by major museum exhibitions, Miller (history of art, Yale) covers Mesoamerica's broad range of cultures, from Olmec to Aztec; geographic areas, including Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Belize, and the Yucat n; and time periods, from archaic to postclassic. She explains how architecture, sculpture, painting, and ceramics relate to the dynamic forces of advance and decline within each culture and pays special attention to recent hieroglyphic decipherments and evidence for dating. The publication is enhanced by 193 pages of illustrations and beautiful color photography on quality paper. This book's trade paperback format make it ideal to take on vacation or to a museum. Recommended for public and academic libraries and for specialized collections. Sylvia Andrews, Indiana State Lib., Indianapolis Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
