"This book brings together one hundred and thirty-nine images of bridges and various systems to cross rivers represented in art in Colombia during the 19th century. Research focuses on the idea that during the first half of that century travelers and artists, both local and foreign, created notions of picturesque and sublime landscapes influenced by the instructions and legacy of Alexander von Humboldt. During the second half of the 19th century, this view changed to build concepts of the river and bridge that crosses them as notions of progress, advancement, the creation of trade routes through the notion of modernization. Towards the end of the 19th century pictures --either drawings, prints or photographs-- touch the limits between the era of progress and a certain nostalgia for the recovery of a lost past."
