Introduction by John Bourne

This illustrated catalogue provides detailed information on 147 works from the collection of John G. Bourne. Each of the three geographical sections of the main catalogue opens with an introductory text on the art, culture and ceremonial features of that region, followed by discursive entries accompanying each work. A checklist provides summary information on the 150 remaining works in the collection. In addition to Mr. Bourne's fascinating account of his first expedition to Chiapas in 1945 and 1946, the catalogue includes an essay on the authentication of Pre-Columbian art.

This publication accompanied an exhibition featured at The Walters Art Museum February 12, 2012- May 20, 2012.
