The artistic local history, gives us information about the national visual arts scene, according to two |main points: The first one, considers the presence of the most important movements and individual artists; the other, since a chronological perspective, informs us from the beginning of our artistic manifestations during the Colony Period, till the most contemporary authors and movements. The chapters and articles that have given origin to this theoretical work, are generated in the connection of those two variable aspects. The present work analyzes the main axis and concepts of our artistical history and proposes a new structure of analysis. This new vision inserts in a scene marked by a context of cultural "appropriations"and by a society that tries to profile its identity. In this manner, our artistic history shows a contradictory scene: the local background versus the imposition of certain conceptual arrangements, more characteristic of the european art
