Images of Latin American Nature from Columbus to Darwin
This sweeping international loan exhibition at The Huntington Library will explore how the depiction of Latin American nature contributed to art and science between the late 1400s and the mid 1800s. ‘Visual Voyages’ will feature more than 150 paintings, rare books, illustrated manuscripts, prints, and drawings from The Huntington’s holdings as well as from dozens of other collections. The exhibition looks at how indigenous peoples, Europeans, Spanish Americans, and individuals of mixed-race descent depicted natural phenomena for a range of purposes and from a variety of perspectives: artistic, cultural, religious, commercial, medical, and scientific. The exhibition is a part of ‘Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA’, an exploration of Latin American and Latino art that involves more than 70 arts institutions across Southern California. Find out more about the ‘Visual Voyages’ exhibition from The Huntington’s website.
