ARTH 271 - Arts of Colonial Latin America


FDR: HA Fine Arts Distribution
Credits: 3

A survey of the art and architecture of Latin America from the 16th through 18th centuries. This course begins with an exploration of the art of the Aztec, Maya, Inca, and Spanish before cultural contact. Classes then explore the cultural convergence that resulted from the European military and spiritual conquest in the 16th century, focusing on the role of indigenous artists and traditions in the formation of early colonial culture. Later lectures consider the rise of nationalism and its effect on the arts. This course fulfills the Arts and Humanities requirement for the LACS minor.
