Sample Text
The arrival and subsequent conquest by Europeans marks the beginning of the Colonial Period in Latin America. Within fifty years, Spanish conquistadors had decimated the native population — once as high as 75 million — the victims of war and diseases they introduced such as smallpox. Spanish culture and styles permeated indigenous societies, and the art of this period reflected primarily European trends, with traditional native Indian motifs and designs assuming a secondary role.
