Santos: Enduring Images of Northern New Mexico Village Churches
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungRichly illustrated with examples of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century art from northern New Mexico's village churches, Santos is an in-depth investigation into the artistic heritage of the New Mexican santero (saint maker). It is also an important study of northern New Mexican artisans and their craft. Cash's extensive research into these formerly anonymous artisans fills a gap in the study of this unique form, making Santos indispensable for art historians and the general reader interested in the culture and art of the American Southwest.
InhaltsverzeichnisThe Colonisation of New Mexico; The Art of the Santero; The Early Santero and His Role in the Churches; The Classic Golden Age of Santero; The Late Period of the Santero; Paintings on Hide, Canvas and Paper; Santos in the Churches and Collections Today; Index.
Pressestimmen"This labor of love meticulously documents and will help protect an artistic tradition that dates back to New Mexico's colonial days. It should be held in the same high esteem as E. Boyd's seminal 1946 book, Saints and Saint Makers of New Mexico."
