by Gilbert Maldonado, Maldonado Journey To The Kingdom Of New Mexico Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Maldonado Journey To The Kingdom Of New Mexico books, Maldonado traces the journey of his family from Scandinavia and the Holy Land to Spain and Portugal and finally to the Kingdom of New Mexico. Arriving in 1598 with the expedition of Juan de Oñate, his ancestors were some of the first settlers of New Mexico. Of the 144 original Spanish/Portuguese colonial families from the 16th and 17th centuries listed by historian and cousin Fray Angélico Chávez, in his pioneering book Origins of New Mexico Families/A Genealogy of the Spanish Colonial Period, 119 are on the Maldonado family tree. from the 18th century, 174 of the 277 colonial families identified by Chávez are also on the Maldonado family tree. Over 5,300 names comprise the Maldonado tree - many of them important figures in the annals of New Mexico history. Maldonado's family tree proves the old adage that everyone in New Mexico is a primo, cousin.

Sculpture In The Kingdom Of Quito

by Gabrielle G. Palmer, Sculpture In The Kingdom Of Quito Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Sculpture In The Kingdom Of Quito books, In this book, the author has limited herself to a narrow topic--carved wooden statuary based on the human figure--to allow herself a carefully defined focus for her twofold purpose: to present the stylistic currents in sculpture in Quito from the Spanish conquest in 1534 to Ecuador's declaration of full independence in 1830, and to offer a new view of the terms Renaissance and Baroque as they relate to Spanish colonial art. Gabrielle Palmer identifies the principle Spanish statues imported to Quito in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and then traces the rise of an indigenous style in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. She maintains that Quitenian sculpture cannot be viewed solely as a derivation from European prototypes. Its style and originality should be recognized as an authentic expression of creativity that both anticipated and provided the psychological foundation for the revolutionary attitude that brought Latin America dependence on Spain to an end in the nineteenth century. Thus Baroque art in Quito is seen in a new and broader context -- Book jacket.
