Item Description: Fondo de Cultura Economica, México, D.F., 1998. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. No Jacket. Malinalco es el lugar de contrastes que se reflejan en las muchas voces poéticas que luchan y habitan este poema, poblado de imágenes que se suceden caóticamente en una única tarde. Un encuentro en la cima de la pirámide bajo el sol abrasador que "partía la extensión del cielo". Una realidad deformada por la altura; la distancia que establece la contemplación desde un lugar mágico y abrumadoramente terrible. Bookseller Inventory # 006525

Item Description: University of Texas Press, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. The valley of Malinalco, Mexico, long renowned for its monolithic Aztec temples, is a microcosm of the historical changes that occurred in the centuries preceding and following the Spanish conquest in the sixteenth century. In particular, the garden frescoes uncovered in 1974 at the Augustinian monastery of Malinalco document the collision of the European search for Utopia with the reality of colonial life. In this study, Jeanette F. Peterson examines the murals within the dual heritage of pre-Hispanic and European muralism to reveal how the wall paintings promoted the political and religious agendas of the Spanish conquerors while preserving a record of pre-Columbian rituals and imagery. She finds that the utopian themes portrayed at Malinalco and other Augustinian monasteries were integrated into a religious and political ideology that, in part, camouflaged the harsh realities of colonial policies toward the native population. That the murals were ultimately whitewashed at the end of the sixteenth century suggests that the spiritual conquest failed. Peterson argues that the incorporation of native features ultimately worked to undermine the orthodoxy of the Christian message. She places the murals imagery within the pre-Columbian tlacuilo (scribe-painter) tradition, traces a Sahagun connection between the Malinalco muralists and the native artists working at the Franciscan school of Tlatelolco, and explores mural painting as an artistic response to acculturation. The book is beautifully illustrated with 137 black-and-white figures, including photographs and line drawings. For everyone interested in the encounter between European and Native American cultures, it will be essential reading. Bookseller Inventory # AAJ9780292769175
