Spring 2018 Featured Latin-American Titles

Cuba, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Panama and Peru are all featured players in our Spring 2018 list. From the poetic “Violet Isle” photographs of husband-and-wife team, Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb to Lars Müller’s study of the architectural monuments and infrastructure along “La Ruta del Peregrino” (Mexico’s religious pilgrimage route), to the “essential” and absolutely illegible 70s writings of Mirtha Dermisache, this catalogue is filled with variety and surprsie. A first monograph on Afro-Brazilian sculptor Sonia Gomes, a collection of 650 works on paper by Guillermo Kuitca, and a study of the great 19th-century tastemaker, Eugenia Errázuriz (patron of Picasso and friend to Cocteau, Sargent and Rodin), all add to the mix.
