Divine Excess. Mexican Ultra-Baroque.
Bei weiteren Verkäufern erhältlichAlle Exemplare dieses Buches anzeigen
Second edition. 15,5cm x 20.5cm. 88, (1) pages. Original Hardcover with original dustjacket. Very good condition with only minor signs of wear. This book contains photographs without commentary - it is not a study of Mexican Baroque/folk style but rather an opportunity to experience something of the Mexican style without traveling. The churchs are all Mexican with the exception of one in Antigua Guatemala. The northernmost is in Zacateca, the southernmost in Mexico is in Tlacholula - some 20+ locations in all. Many of the black and white photos lack sufficient differentiation in the book so that some sections of the photo lacks detail. The composition of the photographs is excellent. Photos of particular interest to me: The Church of Santa Maria in Jolalpan with its very brightly painted exterior, the Day of the Dead colorful skeletons, the very ornate Chapel of the Rosary in Puebla, the vine/saint motif in the Church of Santa Domingo in Oaxaca. If you are interested in folk religion or religious architecture, this volume is recommended. (Review by M.J.Smith). Buchnummer des Verkäufers 1079BB
