9780870709111: Mário Pedrosa: Primary Documents (MoMa Primary Documents)

This latest volume in MoMA's Primary Documents series provides an anthology of the writings of Mário Pedrosa, Brazil's preeminent critic of art, culture, and politics and one of Latin America's most frequently cited public intellectuals. It is the first publication to provide comprehensive English translations of Pedrosa's writings, which are indispensable to understanding Brazilian art of the twentieth century. Included texts range from art and architectural criticism and theory to political writings as well as correspondence with his artistic and political interlocutors, among them such luminaries as André Breton, Alexander Calder, Lygia Clark, Ferreira Gullar, Oscar Niemeyer, Hélio Oiticica, Pablo Picasso, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, Harald Szeeman, and Leon Trotsky.

Review:

"Informative brief essays by critics and scholars, including some who knew and collaborated with Pedrosa, introduce the volume as a whole and preface each of the eight sections. Pedrosa’s life and career are detailed in a chronology created by his grandson. This long-overdue volume makes an important contribution to the literature of modernism. Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals." (E. Douglas Choice 2016-09-01)

"[T]his volume of the writings of Brazilian arts scholars Mário Pedrosa (1900–81) is indeed a welcome event. Pedrosa is considered to be a key figure in the criticism of contemporary Brazilian art, the sort of intellectual presence who both defines the parameters of the subject and establishes major theoretical foundations." (David William Foster Hispania 2017-03-01)

"This essential and third anthology focusing on Latin America renewed my admiration for Pedrosa’s extraordinary critical legacy. It further explained his life’s commitment to both artistic and political revolutions.... The illustrations ... add significant visual and historical dimensions to this anthology." (Simone Osthoff Luso-Brazilian Review 2017-06-01)
