520    Paris was the artistic capital of the world in the 1920s 
       and '30s, providing a home and community for the French 
       and international avant-garde. Latin American artists 
       contributed to and reinterpreted nearly every major 
       modernist movement that took place in the creative center 
       of Paris between World War I and World War II, including 
       Cubism (Diego Rivera), Surrealism (Antonio Berni and 
       Roberto Matta), and Constructivism (Joaquin Torres-
       Garcia). Yet their participation in the Paris art scene 
       has remained largely overlooked until now. This book 
       examines their collective role, surveying the work of both
       household names and an extraordinary array of lesser-known
       artists. Michele Greet illuminates the significant ways in
       which Latin American expatriates helped establish 
       modernism and, conversely, how a Parisian environment 
       influenced the development of Latin American artistic
