About this title

Synopsis:

Shows pottery, carvings, ceramic figures, and masks

From Library Journal:

Rockefeller's collection of Mexican indigenous art is housed in the San Antonio Museum of Art and San Francisco's Mexican Museum. Here it is showcased along with scholarly commentary and an essay written by Rockefeller but never before published. Created for utilitarian, ceremonial, decorative, and entertainment purposes, these icons, toys, textiles, carvings, earthenware, and paintings are here beautifully photographed. The book outlines the nature, philosophy, history, and importance of the collection, which offers insights into the essence of the culture and the society of the Mexican people. Both Carlos Espejel's The Nelson A. Rockefeller Collection of Mexican Folk Art (Chronicle, 1986) and Carl Fox's The Nelson A. Rockefeller Collection of Mexican Folk Art (Museum of Primitive Art, 1969) offer a much less comprehensive treatment. For large public and academic libraries with Latin American culture or folk art collections.
