請依下文回答第 46 題至第 50 題
In general, the influence of Anglo patrons has been much less pronounced
on Hispanic arts than on American Indian arts. The art forms practiced by
the early Hispanics were shaped largely from resources they found in their
natural environment. Using native woods such as aspen or pine, paints
derived from natural pigments, and other local materials, they created
utilitarian goods and religious objects to adorn their homes and churches.
The Hispanic crafts revival was confined to a much shorter period of time:
beginning in the early 1920’s, reaching its peak in the late 1930’s, (46)
and dying down by World War II, less than 20 years. During this period,
in spite of the enthusiasm of the wealthy Anglo patrons in northern New
Mexico, Hispanic crafts never “caught on” nationally in the way
American Indian crafts did. (47) Interest was fairly well limited to
the Southwest and Southern California, the areas in which the
Adobe hacienda revival was taking place. The major interest
in Hispanic crafts was as furnishing for these comfortable Southwestern-
style adobe homes. These crafts were not, as were American Indian crafts,
viewed as valuable art objects in themselves purchased with an eye for
speculation. Hispanic arts to a great degree have been ignored by the
speculative Anglo art market. A beneficial consequence of this oversight
is that the artisans have been freer to work according to their own standards
and within their own traditions. Ranging from carved images of saints,
furniture and textiles, to works in tin, iron, silver and straw, the art of the
Spanish colonial era remains the art of many families who have practiced
the traditional techniques for generations. Meanwhile, other contemporary
Hispanic artists have carried the artistic legacy of their ancestors to new
levels of excellence by working in more modern media including sculpture,
photography, painting, jewelry, literature and more that reflect the ongoing
evolution of Hispanic arts and culture. Though modern and contemporary,
their work has not been “emptied of previous vital meanings” and become
a meaningless revival, as has so much ethnic art of this day. Rather it has
remained as an object of cultural pride and identity and not simply the
product of the tastes and demands of art market.
