Vistas: Visual Culture in Spanish America, 1520-1820
Created by art historians at Smith College in 2005, the goal of the Vistas project is to promote wider understanding of the visual culture of the Spanish Americas. The project covers a vast region and time period, running geographically from California to Chile, and temporally from the 16th century to the early 19th century. The centerpiece of the site is the gallery, with over 100 images arranged by time period. The 1500s, 1600s, and 1700s are the most populated sections.
