About this title


Examines the influence of the arts of the Olmec, Maya, Inca, Aztec, and Moche tribes of South America on five modern artists

From Library Journal:

Among the several strands of "primitive" art that have influenced the development of modernism, the least understood has been that of pre-Columbian America. Braun's penetrating study now illuminates the confluence of aesthetic, intellectual, and social concerns underlying the appropriation of ancient American art by several key artistic personalities of the past century. Carefully argued and beautifully illustrated studies clarify the formal and expressive influences of Andean ceramics on the work of Gauguin, the profound impact of Mesoamerican models on the sculpture of Henry Moore, and the effect of Maya and Mixtec structural shapes and decoration on the buildings of Frank Lloyd Wright. Similarly, there are thoughtful considerations of the role of Central Mexican forms and ideology in shaping the work of Diego Rivera and the use of Peruvian art in the muddled occultism of the painter Torres-Garcia. George Kubler's Esthetic Recognition of Ancient Amerindian Art (Yale Univ. Pr., 1991) is an important scholarly complement to Braun's excellent work.
