TARABITAS Y CABUYAS. LA REPRESENTACIÓN DEL PUENTE EN EL ARTE EN COLOMBIA DURANTE EL SIGLO XIX

This book brings together 139 images of bridges and diverse systems for crossing rivers represented in art during the nineteenth century in Colombia. This research, approaches the idea of travelers and artists, both local and foreign, who during the first half of the century captured notions of pictures and sublime landscapes, influenced by Alexander Von Humboldt’s legacy. During the second half of the nineteenth century, these attitudes regarding rivers and bridges changed in order to accommodate notions such as progress, development, and creation of trade routes, allowing nation to become closer to its ideal. Towards the end of the nineteenth century, images—drawings, engravings, or photographs—portray the tension between progress that the future holds and nostalgia for the past.
