THE AZTEC EMPIRE. Felipe Solis. Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, 2004. Organized and published in association with Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes (CONACULTA) and Instituto Nacional de Antropologia e Historia (INAH), Mexico City. Distributed by D.A.P./Distributed Art Publishers, New York. 376 pp. with 286 ills. (279 col.). 34 x 24 cm. ISBN 0892073217 In English.
Documenting a major exhibition inspired by the Aztec show mounted in 2002 by the Royal Academy of Arts in London (Aztecs, Worldwide 28816), which featured works from various Mexican, European and American collections, this catalogue presents nearly 200 works drawn largely from the collections of the Instituto nacional de Antropologia e Historia in Mexico City, augmented by works from other Mexican museums and by many pre-Columbian pieces from museums in the United States, and features 27 texts written specifically for this publication by Mexican and American scholars. A smaller companion volume, The Aztec Empire: Catalogue of the Exhibition (Worldwide 64348), features illustrations and short descriptive entries for each of the nearly 370 works in the show (including pieces never previously exhibited publicly), presented in the same order in which the objects appeared in the Guggenheim's installation; since the entries in that publication are not included in the main catalogue, many libraries may find it appropriate to acquire both publications.
