In this history of the art of Latin America, the author traces the development of art in the region from pre-Columbian times to the present. Illustrated with colour and black-and-white photographs, ""Latin American Art"" spans all geographical areas and time periods to provide a picture of artistic culture in the entire area. Linking pre-Columbian and Hispanic cultures, the book encompasses art forms ranging from sculpture, pottery and painting, to architecture and cultures from the Ice Age, Classic civilizations, Native empires, and the colonial period of American viceroyalties, to independence and the 20th century. Relating the arts to the life and politics of each age, Scott addresses the major media, styles and artists that defined each period, placing special emphasis on the areas that were the centre of high cultures and analyzing a few distinctive works from each, such as the Inca architecture at Cuzco and the great murals of Mexico.
