Latin American Art at the Allen Memorial Art Museum


Latin American Art at the Allen Memorial Art Museum


This 112-page catalogue of the AMAM’s collection of Latin American art of the 20th and 21st centuries includes more than 80 color illustrations. Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art Denise Birkhofer chronicles the history and growth of the collection, which began in the 1930s and has grown to more than 200 works. An essay by Steven S. Volk, a professor of history at Oberlin College, tells how he has used the AMAM’s Latin American works to engage students in new ways. A foreword by Andria Derstine, John G.W. Cowles Director, discusses the AMAM’s pre-modern works from the region.

The catalogue is available online for $25.00, which includes shipping.
