請依下文回答第 46 題至第 50 題

In general, the influence of Anglo patrons has been much less pronounced

on Hispanic arts than on American Indian arts. The art forms practiced by

the early Hispanics were shaped largely from resources they found in their

natural environment. Using native woods such as aspen or pine, paints

derived from natural pigments, and other local materials, they created

utilitarian goods and religious objects to adorn their homes and churches.

The Hispanic crafts revival was confined to a much shorter period of time:

beginning in the early 1920’s, reaching its peak in the late 1930’s, (46)

and dying down by World War II, less than 20 years. During this period,

in spite of the enthusiasm of the wealthy Anglo patrons in northern New

Mexico, Hispanic crafts never “caught on” nationally in the way

American Indian crafts did. (47) Interest was fairly well limited to

the Southwest and Southern California, the areas in which the

Adobe hacienda revival was taking place. The major interest

in Hispanic crafts was as furnishing for these comfortable Southwestern-

style adobe homes. These crafts were not, as were American Indian crafts,

viewed as valuable art objects in themselves purchased with an eye for

speculation. Hispanic arts to a great degree have been ignored by the

speculative Anglo art market. A beneficial consequence of this oversight

is that the artisans have been freer to work according to their own standards

and within their own traditions. Ranging from carved images of saints,

furniture and textiles, to works in tin, iron, silver and straw, the art of the

Spanish colonial era remains the art of many families who have practiced

the traditional techniques for generations. Meanwhile, other contemporary

Hispanic artists have carried the artistic legacy of their ancestors to new

levels of excellence by working in more modern media including sculpture,

photography, painting, jewelry, literature and more that reflect the ongoing

evolution of Hispanic arts and culture. Though modern and contemporary,

their work has not been “emptied of previous vital meanings” and become

a meaningless revival, as has so much ethnic art of this day. Rather it has

remained as an object of cultural pride and identity and not simply the

product of the tastes and demands of art market.

B46 According to this passage, during which of the following periods were

Hispanic crafts most popular?

A.The early 1920’s. B.The late 1930’s.

C.In the middle of World War II. D. At the end of World War II.

B47 What does it mean when the author says that Hispanic crafts never “caught on”?

A.It was difficult to hang the crafts on walls.

B.The crafts failed to become fashionable.

C The crafts seldom stayed glued together.

D. It was impossible to understand the crafts.

in spite of 雖然…但是…. 該句in spite of 接的是enthusiasm(熱愛的事物) 正面字眼,因此後面那句caught on 必為否定字眼,因此只有失敗成為流行合理

C48 What does “it” in the last sentence of the passage refer to?

A.The clay. B.Ethnic art. C.Their work. D.The revival.

代名詞需代替前面所提過的東西

A49 Which of the following places is NOT mentioned as a place in which

Hispanic crafts were popular?

A.New England. B.The Southwest. C. Southern California.

D. Northern New Mexico. 紅字國名處

A50 What does this passage mainly discuss?
