    A gorgeous book (full color) and a fantastic introduction to painting in New Spain. Interesting articles by recognized scholars in the field make this a coffee table book that should actually be read! Why oh why isn't there a similar book on Peruvian art during the same time period? A great introduction and overview of a (in my opinion) very neglected field of art history. A gorgeous book (full color) and a fantastic introduction to painting in New Spain.
