This comprehensive and extremely well researched study documents the history and evolution throughout political and social changes of the former art academy of San Carlos (now the National School of Fine Arts) form its foundation in 1781 to the early 20th century when the academy was integrated to the National Autonomous University of Mexico, (UNAM). Profusely illustrated, this volume examines in detail the first 127 years of the academic institution through the history of its original building, the academic and administrative organization and the artistic production of its academic staff and students. The academy was not only the origin of art studies and practice of painting, sculpture, architecture and engraving in Mexico, but also the first art museum in the Americas.
