Phipps, Elena, Johanna Hecht & Cristina Esteras Martin.
The Colonial Andes. Tapestries and Silverwork, 1530-1830.

Metropolitan Museum of Art/Yale University Press: 2004.

"The arrival of the Spanish in South America in 1532 permanently transformed societies that had developed over thousands of years, including the great Inca Empire. The arts from the Spanish colonial period-those that drew on native traditions, such as textiles, silver, woodwork, and stonework, as well as painting, sculpture, and other genres introduced by the Spanish-preserve an unspoken dialogue that developed between Andean and European modes of expression. This beautiful catalog focuses on 161 silver objects, textiles, and other masterpieces of colonial Andean culture, with essays discussing the artistry and vibrant energy of this convergent culture".

Softcover. 9"x12", 396 pages, color and black & white illustrations. New.
