Over 1,400 articles in this volume cover all the major artistic developments in Central and South America and the Caribbean from the colonial period to the present. From 16th-century Spanish colonial architects such as Fray Andres San Miguel to European explorers such as Alexander von Humboldt to contemporary artists such as Debora Arango, the entries chart the adaptations of European artistic traditions and the evolution of individual national cultures in this area of burgeoning importance in history and the visual arts.

"The Encyclopedia of Latin American and Caribbean Art, the second volume in the Grove Encyclopedias of the Arts of the Americas series, covers the art of every country in Central and South America and the Caribbean, from the colonial period to the present day. Country surveys chart the evolution of artistic traditions and the melding of European and native art forms not only in architecture and the fine arts, but also in interior design, metalwork, textiles and other decorative arts, and include discussions of art patronage and training in each nation."--BOOK JACKET. "Biographics range from the 17th-century architect and sculptor Juan Tomas Tuyru Tupac Inca, a descendent of the Inca nobility, to the youngest artist profiled, Jac Lierner. Coverage also includes discussions of influential national and international art movements and such issues as the role of the Jesuits in the establishment of Christian artistic traditions, Latin American art in the USA, and women artists in Latin America. There are also some 25 new biographies of contemporary Latin American artists. The 1296 entries are complemented by 396 black-and-white and 84 colour illustrations."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
