Summary "In this classic survey, now updated and with full-color images throughout, renowned art critic Edward Lucie-Smith introduces the art of Latin America from 1900 to the present day. He discusses in detail major figures such as Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, as well as dozens of less well-known artists from Europe and the U.S. who lived in Latin America, such as Leonora Carrington, also feature in this broad, comprehensive view. The artists highlighted here have incorporated indigenous roots and a local tradition into their work; explored abstraction, expressionism and new media (video, installation, performance); entered dialogues with European and North American movements, while insisting on reaching a wide popular audience for their work; and created an energetic, innovative and varied art scene across the continent today. A new chapter extends the discussion in to the twenty-first century, summarizing key trends and the most notable figures of the last two decades. A constant theme is how artists across Latin American continue to embrace the experimental and cutting edge in their work."--Page [4] of cover.
