      Outstanding survey of Mexican art and architecture from the conquest to modern times. I learned a tremendous amount about Mexican art and history from reading this book. Typically survey books in art history are dry, but this one is truly a page turner, from the early pieces that incorporated indigenous and Spanish elements to 19th century history paintings to the modern work of Rivera, Siqueiros, and Kahlo and into contemporary images. An excellent book.
