Transatlantic Encounters: Latin American Artists in Paris between the Wars

In the years between World War I and World War II Paris was at the center of the art world. Indeed, the very essence of twentieth-century art history stems from the movements and avant-garde experiments that emerged there. While numerous scholars have written about the arts in Paris during this period, none examine the participation of the more than two hundred Latin American artists living and working there even though these artists both contributed to and re-interpreted nearly every major modernist trend between the wars. Without the intense transnational dialogues that occurred in Paris between the wars, neither Latin American nor European modernism would have taken the forms it did. This book and accompanying website will examine Latin American artists’ intense interaction with European artists and critics as well as their major contributions to the international art scene in Paris.
