ean: 9780521664967, isbn: 0521664969,

Lettered Artists and the Languages of Empire: Painters and the Profession in Early Colonial Quito
By University of Texas Press
ean: 9781477313282, isbn: 1477313281,

In this major new work based on extensive and largely unpublished archival documentation, Webster identifies and traces the lives of more than fifty painters who plied their trade in the city between 1550 and 1650, revealing their mastery of languages
