Hispanic American heritage in the arts [slideshow]

Hispanic Americans are a core demographic of the United States, making up roughly 18% of the population. This highly diverse group includes recent immigrants and families whose US roots extend back many generations, with some ancestors originating from areas in southern US states that belonged to Mexico prior to the Mexican-American War (1846-48).

To celebrate the achievements of Hispanic Americans from history during Hispanic Heritage Month, here are six key figures from across the arts, spanning fields from painting to writing and music.
