Summary note
"This edited volume's chief aim is to bring together, in an English-language source, the principal histories and narratives of some of the most significant academies and national schools of art in South America, Mexico and the Caribbean, from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries. The book highlights issues shared by Latin American academies of art, but also those that differentiate them from their European counterparts. Authors examine issues including: statutes; influence of workshops and guilds; the importance of patronage; discourses of race and ethnicity in visual pedagogy; and European models versus the quest for national schools. It also offers first-time English translations of many foundational documents of the subject academies and schools. This book will be of interest to scholars in art history, Latin American and Hispanic studies, and modern visual cultures"-- Provided by publisher.
