The Getty Murúa : essays on the making of Martín de Murúa's "Historia general del Piru," J. Paul Getty Museum Ms. Ludwig XIII 16( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of the three extant illustrated manuscripts chronicling the history of the Inca empire and early Spanish rule in the Andes, two are by the Mercedarian friar Martin de Murua, who probably arrived in Peru in the 1570s. His Historia del origen, y genealogia real de los reyes ingas del Piru (1590) and Historia general del Piru (1616) drew on the author's experiences among the indigenous peoples and colonial officials of viceregal Peru as well as on accounts by other Spanish writers and the talents of several Andean illustrators. The Historia general - now known as the Getty Murua - comprises thirty-eight hand-colored images, most depicting Inca kings and queens, and nearly four hundred folios of beautifully calligraphed text. The essays gathered in this volume focus not only on the manuscript's physical components - quires and watermarks, scripts and pigments - but also on its relation to Inca textiles, European portraits, Murua's other manuscript, and the intellectual and social context that gave rise to but did not publish his Historia general. The Getty Murua provides a complex and original analysis of the creation and fate of this early modern historical and artistic treasure." --Book Jacket
A red like no other : how cochineal colored the world : an epic story of art, culture, science, and trade by Museum of International Folk Art (N.M.)( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A global symbol of power, wealth, mystery, and sexuality, red has seduced viewers and inspired artists for millennia. Painters and other artists engaged in a quest for the source of the perfect red that conveyed the luxury, spirit, and substance of living. In the 1520s, Spanish explorers found it in the grand Aztec markets--in a dye derived from the cochineal insect. The ensuing global spread of American cochineal changed art, culture, science, and trade for centuries. A Red Like No Other follows the precious bug juice from Mexico to Europe and beyond as it insinuated itself into all forms of art, politics, and commerce to color the world in vivid red hues. The images show how the colorant touched cultures and artists worldwide, including pre-Columbian weavers, painters of Spain's Golden Age, Middle Eastern rug makers, and Navajo weavers. El Greco, Tintoretto, Velázquez, van Dyck, Rembrandt, Vermeer, and van Gogh used it, as did Spanish fashion icon Mariano Fortuny. Today contemporary artists and designers continue to embrace the colorant for its beauty and meaning. An international team of more than forty scholars and experts brings a wide spectrum of original research on the symbolic meaning of red, the material meaning of cochineal in art and trade, and the history of the artists driven to find the perfect red
Manuscript cultures of colonial Mexico and Peru : new questions and approaches( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume showcases dynamic developments in the field of manuscript research that go beyond traditional textual, iconographic, or codicological studies. Using state-of-the-art conservation technologies, scholars investigate how four manuscripts--the Galvin Murúa, the Getty Murúa, the Florentine Codex, and the Relación de Michoacán--were created and demonstrate why these objects must be studied in a comparative context. The forensic study of manuscripts provides art historians, anthropologists, curators, and conservators with effective methods for determining authorship, identifying technical innovations, and contextualizing illustrated histories. This information, in turn, allows for more nuanced arguments that transcend the information that the written texts and painted images themselves provide. The book encourages scholars to think broadly about the manuscripts of colonial Mexico and Peru in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and employ new techniques and methods of research"--Back cover
