Summary "Images of Ambiente traces the genealogy of gay and lesbian art in four Latin American countries (Mexico, Brazil, Cuba and Puerto Rico) during the last two hundred years. A separate chapter is devoted to artists originating from these countries, yet who were either born in or migrated to Europe or North America." "The book is a contribution to the historical study of gay and lesbian art, yet calls for altering its parameters in ways that fully recognize social and cultural difference. It provides a chronological and conceptual framework for studying the tropes of 'homotextual' expression in a Latin American context. More than one hundred illustrations, gathered from various sources across Latin America, North America and Europe, allow the reader to personally witness this fascinating and, until now, concealed story."--BOOK JACKET
