Guatemalan sculpture produced during the seventeenth, eighteenth and the beginning of the nineteenth centuries by what has come to be known as the Antigua School. The illustrations are accompanied by texts on the principal historical parameters of Guatemalan sculpture, the way these were made and finished, and information about other schools of Spanish American sculpture and a group of characteristics that identifies each. The first six chapters, written by Dr. Luis Luján, contain information on the origins and sources of colonial imagery in Guatemala, as well as methods. The seventh chapter is a study of the artistic characteristics of Antigua baroque style. The last two chapters, written by historian Miguel Alvarez, contain a valuable study of iconography in general and that of Guatemalan images in particular, also, a description of and comparison with the Mexican and Quito schools of colonial sculpture. A vital reference. Second Edition, ENGLISH AND SPANISH TEXT.
