The graphic portfolios of Ernst Barlach (1870–1938) embody the mystical and visionary aspirations of the Expressionist generation. The artist was stimulated by the intense religiosity of Van Gogh’s art seen in Paris, and he experienced a profound self-revelation observing peasants during a journey to Russia. A talented playwright, Barlach’s plays explored themes of revelatio...   [more]

The most valuable source of information, apart from the diverse archaeological remains, comes from Spaniards who looked beyond gold to see the marvels of the New World. Some wrote accounts, while others collected letters and reports by conquistadors fo...   [more]
