A Land So Remote

Volume 1: Religious Art of New Mexico, 1780-1907

Larry Frank, Author

A Land So Remote elegantly illustrates the development of religious art in northern New Mexico during an active period of over 125 years. To sustain their faith in the New World, the Spanish relied on santos, visual representations of saints to alleviate their loneliness and enrich their lives. The result is a uniquely American art which embodies the religious spirit and aspirations of New Mexico's Spanish immigrants.
