Latin America’s rich artistic traditions reach back into prehistory, changing over time as indigenous traditions converged with those of Europe, Asia, and Africa. Beginning just prior to the arrival of Europeans, focusing in on the colonial era, and ending with the independence movements of the early nineteenth century, this course traces the evolution of Latin American art by examining works in a variety of mediums, highlighting objects from the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s collection.
Lecturer: Mark A. Castro, Exhibition Coordinator in the Museum’s Department of European Painting before 1900; and PhD candidate, History of Art, Bryn Mawr College
