Whilst much scholarly work has been focused on Spain's South American colonies, less is known about Spanish colonisation of the Pacific. This book fills an important gap in our knowledge, directing attention both to Spain's wider imperial ambitions, and the specific situation within the Philippines. By structuring the book around the life of Hernando de los R os Coronel, many overlapping and complex threads are drawn out, casting light upon a diverse range of subjects."

The arrival of the Spanish in South America in 1532 permanently transformed the Andean cultural landscape. Within a generation, societies that had developed over thousands of years, including the great Inca Empire, had been irrevocably altered. The arts from the Spanish colonial period--those that drew on native traditions, such as textiles, silver, woodwork, and stonework, as well as painting, sculpture, and other genres introduced by the Spanish--preserve an unspoken dialogue that developed between Andean and European modes of expression.This beautiful book presents silver objects, textiles, and other masterpieces of colonial Andean culture. Essays discuss the artistry of this culture and explain how it has been recently reevaluated and celebrated for its vibrant energy reflecting the convergence of two essentially distinct cultural traditions. This book accompanies an exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (September 29 to December 12, 2004).Elena Phipps is conservator, Textile Conservation, and Johanna Hecht is associate curator, European Sculpture and Decorative Arts, at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
