This introductory chapter provides an overview of the book’s main themes. This book presents concrete manifestations and studies of national collections in late-nineteenth-century and early-twentieth-century Mexico in order to reveal the patterns that emerge among them in terms of the dialogue with international influences against which the parameters of national representation formed. The study builds on the premise that complicating our way of thinking about representative public collections not only offers a common ground for interaction among a plethora of disciplines but also paves the way for this discussion to continue as questions of patrimony and nation navigate the current spaces and speeds of globalization.
