Abstract:

"In the twentieth-century, avant-garde artists from Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean created extraordinary and highly innovative paintings, sculptures, assemblages, mixed-media works, and installations. This book presents more than 250 works by some seventy of these artists (including Gego, Joaquin Torres-Garcia, Xui Solar, and Jose Clemente Orozco) and artists' groups, along with interpretive essays by leading authorities and newly translated manifestoes and other theoretical documents written by the artists. Together the images and texts showcase the artistic achievements of the Latin American avant-garde."--Jacket.
