Twentieth-century Art of Latin AmericaBook - 2001
The 20th century art of Latin America is art in the western tradition, and its leading figures - Wilfredo Lam, Roberto Matta, Diego Rivera, Joaquin Torres-Garcia, to name only a few - have achieved international stature. Yet much of the writing about this art has offered either a victimised view of what Latin American art should be. This pathfinding book, by contrast, seeks not to invent Latin American art but to look at it from the points of view of its own artists and critics.
