A Ver: Revisioning Art History

The award-winning A Ver: Revisioning Art History book series stems from the conviction that individual artists and their coherent bodies of work are the foundation for a meaningful and diverse art history. This series explores the cultural, aesthetic, and historical contributions of Chicano, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Dominican, and other U.S. Latino artists.

Each volume contains a foreword by the series editor, a scholarly essay, full-color illustrations, an exhibition history, and a selected bibliography of writings on the artist.
