In this classic survey, now updated and with full-colour images throughout, Edward Lucie-Smith introduces the art of Latin America from 1900 to the present day. He discusses in detail major figures such as Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, as well as dozens of less well-known artists. Those who spent their lives in exile, and artists from Europe and the US who lived in South America, such as Leonora Carrington, are all included in this broad, comprehensive view. The artists featured here have sought for indigenous roots and a local tradition; explored abstraction, expressionism and new media (video, installation, performance); entered dialogue with European and North American movements, while insisting on reaching a wide popular audience for their work; and created an energetic, innovative and very varied art scene across the continent today. A new chapter extends the discussion into the twenty-first century, summarizing key trends and most notable figures of the last two decades. A constant theme is the embrace of the experimental and the new by artists across Latin America.

Edward Lucie-Smith was born in 1933 in Jamaica and educated at Merton College, Oxford, where he read History. Well known as a poet, novelist, biographer, broadcaster and critic, he is the author of numerous books – among them The Thames & Hudson Dictionary of Art Terms, Furniture, Movements in Art Since 1945, Symbolist Art and Sexuality in Western Art (all in the World of Art series).
