Editorial Reviews

Christopher Benfey
Extraordinary artwork from farther south is displayed in the fascinating volume The Colonial Andes: Tapestries and Silverwork, 1530-1830, by Elena Phipps, Johanna Hecht and Cristina Esteras Martin. The discovery by Spanish invaders of silver (worshiped by the Inca as the tears of the moon) in abundance in the Bolivian mountains ignited a cultural explosion.
