"Handsome monograph marks the culmination of a survey of hacienda houses from the Valley of Alto Cauca initiated by authors in 1987. Important contribution to the study of South American colonial rural architecture from an art historical point of view and a much needed complement to widely published socioeconomic research on the subject. Separate chapters with generous notes discuss the setting, function, building techniques, and form of the hacienda houses. Comprehensive bibliography includes suggestions for further reading and lists documentary sources in regional archives. The catalogue raisonné features 20 hacienda houses, each illustrated with fine site plans; elevation drawings; and color photographs, which, unfortunately, are of relatively poor quality"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
