Retratos (2,000 Years of Latin-American Portraits)


This is a multi-museum exhibition featuring more than 100 portraits, and artist infoormation, from over 15 countries in Latin America. Examples from five distinct time periods in Latin American history are presented, beginning with pre-Columbian America and continuing into the contemporary era. An excellent resource for examining the artistic output of a culture over time and for learning about important trends in Latino art and about the political history of the region. The site, available either in English or Spanish, also offers an amazingly useful 80-page dual-language teacher's resource guide.
