Working through four case studies, this book focuses on conceptual issues involved in coming to grips with works of art that bear significant marks of more than one culture. The case studies examine Mahler's "Das Lied von der Erde", Ming landscape paintings, Iranian rugs, and Guatemalan architecture, textiles and folktales, and distinguish between joining these elements and merely juxtaposing, blending or mixing them.
