"The Vistas project seeks to bring an understanding of the visual culture of Spanish America to a broad audience. Spanish America was an extensive region—covering much of the Americas, running from California to Chile from the 16th century to the early 19th century. Its visual culture was forged in urban centers, religious and frontier communities, and indigenous towns. The new Vistas website offers a gallery of high-resolution color images, each of them fully annotated, videos and interpretive essays on Vista’s six themes, along with discussion of related images. In the “Library” and “Texts” sections are primary documents relating to visual culture, with discussions and bibliography. Other features are seen in the sidebar."
