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 )

19 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 714 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 )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 392 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
