ANCIENT AMERICAN ART, 3500 BC - AD 1532: Masterworks of the Pre-Columbian Era

Milan: 5 Continents, 2019. First Edition. Hardcover. "From ancient Valdivian figurines and vessels made 5000 years before the arrival of Europeans, to Inca and Aztec objects created just before the Spanish arrived, the rich array of ancient Latin American cultures is represented here, in the Jimmy and Leonora Belilty collection. Spanning fifty centuries and covering the vast geographic expanse from southern Peru to northern Mexico, this collection presents a remarkable survey of ancient American art. There are images of gods, portraits of men and women, representations of animals and plants, and objects of pure abstraction. Jade, gold, clay, stone, wood, bone and shell objects reveal the wide variety of materials pre-Columbian artists used." Lavishly illustrated in full color. Quarto: 392 p. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket - as new, still sealed in the original shrink wrap. Fine / Fine. Item #74232
