Overview

In this history of the art of Latin America, the first in a generation, John F. Scott traces the development of art in the region from pre-Columbian times to the present. Illustrated with 192 color and black-and-white photographs, Latin American Art spans geographical areas and time periods to provide a coherent picture of artistic culture throughout Latin America. Unique in its linking of pre-Columbian and Hispanic cultures, the book encompasses art forms ranging from sculpture, pottery, and painting to architecture, and cultures ranging from the Ice Age to Classic civilizations, Native empires, and the colonial period of American viceroyalties to independence and the twentieth century. Latin American Art will be an important text in arts and humanities courses. It will also be of value to art historians and to those interested in cultural studies, ethnic studies, and Latin America in general.
