Spain's vast American empire was a place of complex and contested interactions. Focusing on Mexico and Peru from the 15th to the 19th centuries, this lavishly illustrated study examines the way interactions between Spaniards and indigenous peoples were interpreted in the arts, embracing topics such as conflicting views of the conquest, the idea of the Amerindian as a 'good Christian', and the survival of elements of Aztec and Inca culture in the formation of new identities.
