HART379 Colonial Latin American Art 3 cr.

This course will survey the art produced in Latin America during the colonial period, an era that began with the arrival of Cortes in Mexico in 1519 and ended in the nineteenth century when Spain and Portugal lost the last of their American territories. Students will examine the art produced during this period in the context of both preexisting indigenous traditions and contemporary European trends. In particular the class will focus on how indigenous art forms and concepts were able to persist amidst dominating colonial forces.
