Latin American Art in the Twentieth Century by Edward Sullivan
Book DescriptionThis is the first comprehensive survey of an important and increasingly popular field. Because each of the contributors is an expert on his or her own national art, it is also the first to present a genuinely Latin American viewpoint. 17 scholars, critics and curators provide an exciting and challenging new assessment of twentieth-century Latin American art. The wider public and scholars alike will welcome the full and authoritative treatment of the different histories and cultural traditions that have given each country its own character. Major artists such as Wifredo Lam, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Fernando Botero are seen in a wider context, and the exploration of the rich and important heritage of previously overlooked countries such as Ecuador, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Paraguay and Bolivia will be a revelation to many. Springing from complex cultural roots, Latin American art is fresh, varied and often startling in its originality. Its range and quality are here represented in over 300 outstanding images.

UK Kirkus Review » The art produced in Latin America this century is enjoying an unprecedented prominence, both in major exhibitions and in the number of books appearing on the subject, whether general surveys like this one or studies of individual artists such as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and Fernando Botero. With 17 authors each writing about the art of his or her own country, what distinguishes this book is that it is the first to present a truly Latin American perspective on the subject. It cannot fail therefore to deepen our understanding of the art of the region. Springing from complex cultural roots, Latin American art is fresh, varied and often startling in its originality. Its range and quality is represented here in over 300 reproductions, and each chapter is devoted to a different country. A major overview of an extraordinarily vital aspect of modern art. (Kirkus UK)
