This book is being lauded as “an excellent contribution to the literature on Latin American art and culture” (Katherine Manthorne, CUNY Graduate Center). Dr. Greet’s work is praised as being “purposeful, careful, and thoughtful, a nuanced analysis of indigenism in twentieth-century Andean art” (Stacie Widdefield, University of Arizona).
