   schema:description "Cosmopolitan routes" situates 20th-century Latin American art as an evolving discourse of individual impulses, universal themes, and shared ideas. It further illustrates the parallels between works produced in Latin America and the artistic movements that have come to define modern and contemporary art on a global level. Showcased in detail are nearly 100 masterworks from Houston collections, ranging from early Modernist and postwar pieces to contemporary creations by artists from Uruguay, Brazil, Venezuela, and Mexico. From the Constructive Universalism of Uruguayan artist Joaquin Torres-Garcia to the figurative and Surrealist work of artists such as Remedios Varo, Leonora Carrington, and Pedro Friedeberg, a host of diverse movements are represented. All of the works demonstrate the depth and quality of Latin American artistic expression as well as the spirit of diversity and exploration involved in the quest for collecting art."@en ;
