Beschrijving Visual Culture in Early Modernity: Architectural Rhetoric and the Iconography of Authority in Colonial Mexico

This book investigates the role of the architectural façade as an indicator of individual and communal cultural identities, focusing on a residence of a conquistador rather than religious and monarchial structures. Cody Barteet analyzes the Casa de Montejo within the visual culture that it belongs, including transatlantic networks of architectural exchange. Such a contextualization allows for consideration of the architectural rhetoric of the façade, the design of which visualizes the contestations of autonomy and authority occurring among the colonial peoples, including between the colonizers and colonized, among the colonizers and the Crown and its surrogate institutions, and among the colonized peoples as they attempted to situate themselves within the new societal realties of Yucatán.
