Library Journal Review

Edited by Katzew (curator & cohead, Latin American art, Los Angeles Cty. Museum of Art; Casta Painting: Images of Race in Eighteenth-Century Mexico), this book works to dispel the notion that when the Spanish conquered much of Central and South America, the indigenous peoples and their cultures simply vanished. The accompanying publication to an exhibition of the same name at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, it consists of a dozen detailed, scholarly, illustrated studies by a roster of international experts focusing primarily on Mexico and Peru in the pre-Columbian and colonial eras. Each essay provides a different look at the ways indigenous populations perceived and responded to colonialism, as evidenced in various artistic works ranging from Aztec and Inca artifacts to colonial-era murals, paintings, prints, and more. Verdict Since interest in colonial Latin American art continues to grow, this is an essential title. An excellent guide to the complexity and vitality of the indigenous response to the colonial experience in art.-Eugene C. Burt, Seattle (c) Copyright 2012.
