Guamán Poma de Ayala: The Colonial Art of an Andean Author

December 31, 1991

This catalogue includes the epic-scale illustrated manuscript, Nueva crónica y buen gobierno (New Chronicle and Good Government), written by Felipe Guamán Poma de Ayala circa 1615, which presents an account of the effects of the Conquest from a voice rarely heard—that of the conquered. The catalogue also includes essays by Rolena Adorno, Tom Cummins, Teresa Gisbert, Marten van de Guchte, Mercedes López-Baralt, and John V. Murra, which address the often confrontational relationship between European and native Andean cultures in colonial Peru.
