About this product
- DescriptionIn this wide-ranging book, a distinguished scholar of Latin American art explores the meanings of created and depicted objects from the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking regions of the New World. Edward J. Sullivan begins with objects exchanged during encounters between indigeus peoples of the Americas and newly-arrived Europeans, and he pursues the discussion to the present day, as artists engage in breaking down constructed concepts of Latin American-ness. Sullivan's scope is sweeping-the changing meanings of objects over five centuries-and he encourages deeper conversation about the complexities of today's culture of the Americas. From American-made handicrafts displayed in Old World curiosity cabinets, to still life paintings projecting a Latin American nation's proud self-image, to 20th-century found objects identified as works of art, objects from the Americas provide a wealth of cultural insights. This generously illustrated volume invites the reader to travel across time and national boundaries to examine an array of these extraordinary and meaningful objects.
- Author BiographyEdward J. Sullivan is dean of the humanities and professor of fine arts at New York University and the Institute for Fine Arts. He is the author of several books on Latin American art, including the popular textbook Latin American Art in the Twentieth Century.
