Mexican muralism : a critical history( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this comprehensive collection of essays, three generations of international scholars examine Mexican muralism in its broad artistic and historical contexts, from its iconic figures--Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siquieros--to their successors in Mexico, the United States, and across Latin America. These muralists conceived of their art as a political weapon in popular struggles over revolution and resistance, state modernization and civic participation, artistic freedom and cultural imperialism. The contributors to this volume show how these artists' murals transcended borders to engage major issues raised by the many different forms of modernity that emerged throughout the Americas during the twentieth century."--Page 4 of cover

Seeing Mexico photographed : the work of Horne, Casasola, Modotti, and Álvarez Bravo by Leonard Folgarait( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents the photographs of four historically engaged artists and explains what they reveal about the highly dramatic revolutionary and post-revolutionary period in Mexico from 1910 to 1935. The works of these photographers - American Walter H. Horne, Italian Tina Modotti, and Mexicans Agustin Victor Casasola and Manuel Alvarez Bravo - are discussed not just as windows onto events but as artworks that offer both objective reporting and stylized expression."--Jacket
So far from Heaven : David Alfaro Siqueiros' The march of humanity and Mexican revolutionary politics by Leonard Folgarait( Book )

10 editions published between 1987 and 2009 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1964 and 1971, the Mexican mural painter David Alfaro Siqueiros produced The March of Humanity on Earth and Toward the Cosmos in Mexico City, his last major project and the largest mural in the world. This illustrated book mounts a careful study of the painting, which it sees as marking the end of the Mexican mural movement. The main purpose of the book is to place the mural into the social-historical context of the period of its production. Due to this approach, the mural is seen not only as a work of art, but also as a symbol and carrier of Mexican political ideology, especially as it concerns the government's attempts to continue presenting the Mexican Revolution of 1910 as the source and basis of contemporary and future social, political, and economic policy. Professor Folgarait's book provides a fascinating case-study highlighting the conflict of modernistic and naturalistic trends in art, and makes an important contribution to the study of Mexican art of the twentieth century and to the general topic of the relationship of art to politics.--Amazon.com
Painting 1909 : Pablo Picasso, Gertrude Stein, Henri Bergson, comics, Albert Einstein, and anarchy by Leonard Folgarait( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1909, renowned artist Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) embarked on a series of stylistic experiments that had a dramatic effect on modern art. This book examines the ways in which Picasso's art of 1909 intertwines and engages with the larger intellectual framework of his time and sheds light on how the writings of Gertrude Stein, the philosophy of Henri Bergson, the theories of Albert Einstein, and even American comic strips played a role in the development of Picasso's unique artistic style. With an insightful, interdisciplinary approach that focuses on how European society was grappling with the larger issues of how to conceptualize, write about, and visualize a rapidly modernizing culture, Painting 1909 presents a methodical exploration of Picasso's stylistic choices and proposes new reasons for the development of radical modernist art that led to Cubism and, eventually, absolute abstraction
