Resumen del Libro
Rida Eder introduces this fascinating compilation of 39 papers presented at the 20th Coloquio International de Historia del Arte, celebrated at the Univ. of Puebla in 1996. Themes are divided into three areas: patronage, collecting, and circulation of the work of art. The extraordinary variety of presentations centered around three activities inherent to the role of the arts, rarely the subject of any analysis in Latin America, makes this work particularly enlightening. Themes range from role of religious orders in the colonial Americas to censorship at the 1963 and 1964 Säao Paulo Biennials –Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
