This is the latest fine book by the artist and art historian, John Castagno. The book fills a much noticed void in the art field by concentrating on Latin American artists...is very complete and is indispensable to dealers, collectors, museums and art libraries.
The Antiquer's Guide


His five other directories are the best in their fields and his sixth is equally superior. It lists 1,100 artists and includes 1,650 signature examples....Latin American art is more popular than ever and this directory fills an important gap in available research materials. I highly recommend it.
