Description - Latin American Art in the Twentieth Century by Edward Sullivan

Latin American art of the 20th century has an extraordinary vitality, and the growing public interest in it has been reflected in many recent exhibitions and publications. Written by a distinguished team of experts, each writing about his or her own country, this text provides a general survey of the whole field. It also presents a truly Latin American viewpoint. The wider public and scholars alike should welcome this fresh assessment of a many-sided phenomenon. Major artists such as Wifredo Lam, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Fernando Botera are seen in a wider context, and the exploration of the rich and important traditions of previously overlooked countries, such as Ecuador, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Paraguay and Bolivia should be relevant 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 images. Written by scholars and critics who speak with the voice of their own culture, this volume presents a challenge to the traditions of Europe and North America.
