The Poetics of Word and Image in the Hispanic Avant-Garde by Catharine E. Wall. 

This book explores that relationship between the verbal and visual arts in the Hispanic avant-garde, from its rise in Spain and France in the 1910s to its subsequent development in Hispanophone Latin America throughout the 1920s. The survey travels by country to explore the way in which this phenomenon spread geographically and germinated differently in distinct cultural and regional contexts, but still continued to maintain an internal consistency that spanned the Hispanophone world.
