This award-winning catalogue was published in conjunction with the 1991 exhibition, "Latin American Drawings Today". 49 Latin American artist from Mexico to Chile are represented, some of whom are: Ramn Alejandro; Jorge Alvaro Guillermo Nuez; Isabel Ruiz; Jose Miguel Rojas; and Helen Escobedo. The fragmentary history of drawing in combination with the complex political development of Latin America would seem to crate an unmanageable focus for an exhibition and accompanying catalogue, and yet a unifying factor emerges: an extraordinary vitality. The twinned threads of pre-Columbian murals and European Renaissance painting have co-evolved centuries later into a strong tradition of fusion plus exploration. Folk art, mythology, and an ever-fluctuation interaction with international post-war art influences contribute to Latin American drawing today.
