From American-made handicrafts displayed in Old World curiosity cabinets, to still life paintings projecting a Latin American nation's proud self-image, to 20th-century "found objects" identified as works of art, objects from the Americas provide a wealth of cultural insights. This generously illustrated volume invites the reader to travel across time and national boundaries to examine an array of these extraordinary and meaningful objects.
