Folk treasures of Mexico : the Nelson A. Rockefeller Collection in the San Antonio Museum of Art and the Mexican Museum, San Francisco by Marion Oettinger( Book )
10 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The main text, by Marion Oettinger, Jr., the Betty and Bob Kelso Director of the San Antonio Museum of Art, tells the remarkable story of Rockefeller the collector, whose lifelong interest in art, official involvement with Latin America and personal vision helped create his Mexican folk art collection. Oettinger describes the works themselves according to function as utilitarian, ceremonial or decorative objects, or objects of play and fantasy. He devotes his last chapter to the Mexican folk artists who created this incredible diversity of art and inspired Rockefeller with their imagination and skill. Accompanying the plates of the objects are lively and informative commentaries written by Annie O'Neill, folk art specialist and former adviser to Rockefeller on this collection
The folk art of Latin America : visiones del pueblo by Marion Oettinger( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The result of extensive fieldwork throughout Mexico, Central and South America, and Spanish- and French-speaking islands in the Caribbean, this beautiful and informative book concentrates on folk art made by Latin Americans for Latin Americans; it does not concern itself with folk art made for export. The objects illustrated are not only aesthetically pleasing, but have also been carefully selected because they play central roles in Latin American society and culture." "In this study, Chapter 1 discusses the nature of folk art and explores the subject through time in Latin America, with special attention paid to the composite character of contemporary folk art in Latin America. Chapter 2 deals with contemporary folk artists and their conception of the contribution they make to local society and traditions. Chapter 3 presents the rich variety of folk forms in Latin America today and considers them in four categories: ceremonial, utilitarian, recreational, and decorative. Finally, chapter 4 examines the ever-changing nature of folk art and what such changes mean to the quickly evolving societies served by folk art."--Jacket

Retratos : 2,000 years of Latin American portraits by Elizabeth P Benson( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The tradition of portraiture in Latin America is astonishingly long and rich. For over 2,000 years, portraits have been used to preserve the memory of the deceased, bolster the social standing of the aristocracy, mark the deeds of the mighty, advance the careers of politicians, record rites of passage, and mock symbols of the status quo. This beautiful and wide-ranging book-the first to explore the tradition of portraiture in Latin America from pre-Columbian times to the present day-features some 200 works from fifteen countries. Retratos (Portraits) presents an engaging variety of works by such well-known figures as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Fernando Botero, and Jose Campeche as well as stunning examples by anonymous and obscure artists. Distinguished contributors discuss the significance of portraits in ancient Mayan civilizations, in the world of colonial Iberians, in the political struggles of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and in a remarkable range of other times and locations. With a wealth of informative details and exquisite color illustrations, Retratos invites readers to appreciate Latin American portraits and their many meanings as never before. F This book is the catalogue for the first exhibition of Latin American portraiture ever organized in the United States. The exhibition is on view at El Museo del Barrio, New York (December 3, 2004 to March 20, 2005) the San Diego Museum of Art (April 16 to June 12, 2005) the Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach (July 23 to October 2, 2005) the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian, Washington, D.C.
