A review in which Edward Lucie-Smith discusses major subjects and issues such as Magic Realism, Expressionism and other concepts shared with Latin American literature; the great muralists Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Jose Clemente Orozc; the interaction of politics, society and art; the continuing interest in folk art; and the dialogue between avant-garde European and North American movements and "indigenist" thinking in the styles of artists such as Wifredo Lam, Rufino Tamayo and Frida Kahlo. Many other artists are covered - including a large number of women, from the 1900s to the present day - in this introduction to a great body of original and imaginative work.

About the Author:

Edward Lucie-Smith is the author of several books, among them Sexuality in Western Art, Symbolist Art, Latin American Art of the Twentieth Century, and The Thames & Hudson Dictionary of Art Terms, all published in the World of Art series.

From Library Journal:

Since Columbus, each Latin American nation has mixed its native soil with outside influences and from this sculpted a vital corpus, with which few outsiders are well aquainted. To remedy this, well-known art historian Lucie-Smith manages to cover the last century or so of all Latin American art. Considering all that time and territory, he does a fairly good job. Familiar "isms" from Europe and the United States frequently acted only as catalysts for uniquely Latin American manifestations. For instance, Argentine Constructivism is distinct from Russian Constructivism. Readers are likely to find refreshing illustrations and discover many artists for the first time. Informative yet concise, this decent sampler fills a gap.
