'Art & Ideas has broken new ground in making accessible authoritative views on periods, movements and concepts in art. As a series it represents a real advance in publishing.' (Sir Nicholas Serota, Director, Tate London) 'The format is wonderful and offers what had long been missing in academic studies: usable manuals for specific themes or periods...I am definitely not alone in welcoming Art & Ideas as a precious set of teaching tools.' (Joachim Pissarro, Yale University) 'Wide-ranging and handsomely illustrated ... plunges the reader into profoundly alien cultures that produced beautiful, often awesome artworks.' (Independent) 'Lively and strking.' (The Times) 'The bargain of the year, crammed with original research, but priced as a general interest book. ... a lucid, fascinating and beautifully illustrated account of the spectacular results of creative fusion between the vibrant visual cultures of South America and European baroque art. A book which opens up a little-known world.' (Jane Stevenson, novelist, The Observer) 'Seldom can so much original research, fresh information and illustrations of so many unfamiliar works of art have appeared in a reasonably priced, mass-market paperback ... It is a considerable achievement to have surveyed such a vast range of material from such a rich and various region in a single volume ... this book, at a popular price, represents a remarkable bargain. Buy it and discover a new world hitherto all but closed to the Anglophone reader.' (The Tablet) 'Warmly recommended to all teachers and students of the history of early modern art and architecture ... The accessible text and generous number of well-presented illustrations also reveal the 'staggering variety of media' practised in Latin America ... contributes to a rapidly growing consensus that the arts of Latin America, and the world, existed in the early modern period as they do now, not just in a dualistic diaologue between 'us and them', but in a complex interconnectedness.' (Rodney Palmer, University of East Anglia, The Art Book)
