Mexican muralism : a critical history ( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 447 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
The social and the real : political art of the 1930s in the western hemisphere ( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the 1930s, American artists, such as Ben Shahn, developed a mode of representation generally known as Social Realism. Presenting an assessment of Social Realism, this book contends that the radical, 'realistic' art of the Americas during the 1930s was shaped as much by hemispheric exchange as by emulation of the European avant-garde
Orozco in gringoland : the years in New York by Alejandro Anreus ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Jose Clemente Orozco (1883-1949) was one of the three great Mexican muralists, along with Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros, all of whom worked in the United States and had great influence on artists here. During his self-imposed exile in New York City (1927-34), Orozco painted two important murals - at the New School for Social Research in 1930-31 and a portable work for the Museum of Modern Art in 1940. He also made nineteen lithographs and produced countless drawings and easel paintings covering both Mexican and New York themes, turning his anti-imperialist eye on the Mexican Revolution and peasant life as well as on the Gringo reality and alienating metropolitan world he encountered in New York. His bold, expressionistic work from this period has never before been analyzed this probingly." "The New York years represented a crossroads for Orozco as his revolutionary hope gave way to a pessimistic critique of modern society - while at the same time he vastly expanded his artistic vision. These years were critical in Orozco's career as he found expression for his developing vision of a complex and turbulent world."--BOOK JACKET
