Provides a multifaceted examination of the relationship between Latin America and the Low Countries from the 1500s to the present, emphasizing the prominent role played by the Flemish and the Dutch in economic and cultural exchanges between Europe and the New World during the 16th and 17th centuries. Among the array of some 400 works documented in the catalogue are tapestries, manuscripts, maps, weapons, navigational instruments, coins, and silver and gold objects; ethnographic prints and historical and religious paintings by European artists; works by early Latin American painters and by such modern figures as Kahlo, Orozco and Torres-Garcia; and specially commissioned pieces by 20 contemporary Latin American artists. Lengthy commentaries on the exhibited works and on individual artists are accompanied by more than 20 well-illustrated essays discussing such diverse topics as the influence of 16th-century Franciscan missionary Peter of Ghent on mural painting and architecture in New Spain, the depiction of women in European and colonial art, and the symbolic representation of the New World by modern Latin American artists.
