Los artistas latinoamericanos han participado en la vanguardia de casi todos los principales movimientos artisticos de este siglo, desde el cubismo hasta el arte conceptual. El constructivista uruguayo Joaquin Torres-Garcia, el realista saririco cubano Wifredo Lam son algunos de los grandes artistas del arte moderno cuya obra ha tenido impacto en estepais. Muchos de los artistas latinoamericanos, como el muralista mexicano Diego Rivera y el chileno Roberto Matta, han influidodirectamente en los artistas de los Estados Unidos; otros artistasde Latinoamerica han adoptado en sus obras influencias artisticas de los Estados Unidos; y otros ban forjado caminos y movimientos autocronos de Latinoamerica. Los capitulos de este libro sobre los artistas puertorriquenos y mexicanos examinan con interes especial el intercambio cultural (que frecuentemente ha reflejado tendencias y perspectivas politicas) que de por si constituye con relato fascinante.Los autores?todos criticos, historiadores y conservadoresde arte de los Estados Unidos y Latinoamerica nos introducen a la tremenda variedad del arte latinoamericano y documentan la presencia y contribucion latinoamericana a la historia del arte de los Estados Unidos. Las 230 ilustraciones, 100 a todo color, representan muchos dibujos, pinturas, esculturas y estampas previamente ineditos.

From Library Journal:

The catalog of a traveling exhibition, this important book examines the involvement of Latin American artists in U.S. cultural lifeand their impact on that culture. The artists represented have considerable public presence in six categories: Constructivism and geometric art, socially concerned Latin American art, New World surrealism, abstraction, figuration, and Realism. The essays, by critics, historians, and curators, aim at redefining the way this art is viewed in this country. Excellent illustrations, short biographies, and an extensive bibliography make this endeavor as rich and rewarding as the art itself. Recommended for all large collections. This book is also available in a Spanish edition, titled El espiritu latinoamericano: arte y artistas en los Estados Unidos; ISBN 0-8109-1265-1. Ed.
