About this Item: University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque, NM, 2001. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st. Cloth, xii, 180 pp., illus., biblio., index; 27 cm. Tight, clean copy. Stated "First edition." Dust jacket, with a creased front flap, protected in a mylar book cover. The Mexican muralist Jose Clemente Orozco lived in a self-imposed exile in New York City from 1927 to 1934. "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." - Publisher. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Collectible.

About this Item: BRITISH MUSEUM PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Between 1910 and 1920, Mexico was convulsed by socialist revolution, from which emerged a strong left-wing government that laid great stress on art as a vehicle for promoting revolutionary values. This led to a pioneering programme to cover the walls of public buildings with vast murals and, later, to setting up print workshops to produce works for mass distribution and education. This book is published to accompany the first ever exhibition on this period to be held in Europe, on view at the British Museum from 27 October 28 February 2010. It will feature approximately 130 prints by over 40 artists, including the three great men of Mexican art of the period: Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros. In this title, a fascinating range of material includes not only single-sheet artists prints but also large posters with designs in woodcut or lithography, as well as illustrated books on many different themes. Also included are earlier works by the popular engraver Jose Guadalupe Posada, adopted by the revolutionaries as the archetypal printmaker working for the people, and whose macabre dances of skeletons have always fascinated Europeans. Essays by Alison McClean and Dawn Ades will set Mexican printmaking in its artistic and political context. The book will also contain concise biographies of all the artists featured.

About this Item: Dover Publications Inc., United States, 1989. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. From the monumental public frescoes of Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros, to the canvasses and drawings of younger artists like Galvan, Cantu, Meza, Tamayo, and Orozco Romero, Mexican painting since the First World War has developed into a strong, influential artistic tradition. This book explores this Mexican tradition -- the artists, their works, the social and political background, and the relationship of the modern painters to European and Mexican historical tradition. Helm, an important collector who knew most of the artists, writes informally yet with deep understanding about the major figures -- Orozco, Rivera, and Siqueiros -- as well as over 40 others little known outside their native Mexico. He ably ties together such diverse influences as the Revolution and the regime of Obregon, the Siqueiros Syndicate and its power in getting artists to pool resources and works for a powerful national style, Rivera s strong political beliefs and their effect on his work, Orozco s deep empathy, the development of the young artists, the effects of low wages and bohemian existence on artistic production, links to Indian art, the rediscovery of fresco technique, important patrons, the religious and anti-religious forces in the early works, and much more. In addition, 95 works by 37 artists are reproduced, showing the range and best works of modern Mexican painting. MacKinley Helm was in a uniquely favorable position to write about these artists, and his book is now considered the best introduction to the art and artists of Mexico during the great artistic movements of the 20s and 30s. Collectors, artists, and others who have felt the lack of solid information about this important Western tradition will find this book gives clear insight into the conflicts, personalities, and important works that have developed into modern Mexican art.

About this Item: BookSurge Publishing. Paperback. Condition: New. 509 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 1.2in.David Alfaro Siqueiros (1896-1974) was a revolutionary artist and lifetime political activist, whose life story reads like a novel. A founder of the Mexican Mural Movement, he developed a modern realism in the murals he painted in Mexico, Los Angeles, Argentina, Chile and Cuba, which provoked acts of censureship. Though primarily a muralist, he also painted expressive portraits, still lifes and landscapes. Self-proclaimed ideologue of the mural movement, he critiqued modern art and artists in journals which he published. He fought in the Mexican Revolution, organized workers, commanded front-line troops in Spain and led protests against fascism and imperialism. Imprisoned for his militant activities in Mexico, he was also exiled or deported from Mexico, the United States, Argentina and Spain. Since his art and activism encompassed many important issues and personalities in art and politics, his biography is a capsule history of modern Mexico and the twentieth century.

About this Item: CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. 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.

About this Item: CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.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.

About this Item: The University of North Carolina Press, United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Stephanie J. Smith brings Mexican politics and art together, chronicling the turbulent relations between radical artists and the postrevolutionary Mexican state. The revolution opened space for new political ideas, but by the late 1920s many government officials argued that consolidating the nation required coercive measures toward dissenters. While artists and intellectuals, some of them professed Communists, sought free expression in matters both artistic and political, Smith reveals how they simultaneously learned the fine art of negotiation with the increasingly authoritarian government in order to secure clout and financial patronage. But the government, Smith shows, also had reason to accommodate artists, and a surprising and volatile interdependence grew between the artists and the politicians. Involving well-known artists such as Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siqueiros, as well as some less well known, including Tina Modotti, Leopoldo Mendez, and Aurora Reyes, politicians began to appropriate the artists nationalistic visual images as weapons in a national propaganda war. High-stakes negotiating and co-opting took place between the two camps as they sparred over the production of generally accepted notions and representations of the revolution s legacy-and what it meant to be authentically Mexican.

About this Item: University of Arizona Press, United States, 2003. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Murals have been an important medium of public expression in Mexico since the Mexican Revolution, and names such as Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Jose Clemente Orozco will forever be linked with this revolutionary art form. Many people, however, believe that Mexico s renowned mural tradition died with these famous practitioners, and today s mural artists labor in obscurity as many of their creations are destroyed through hostility or neglect. This book traces the ongoing critical contributions of mural arts to public life in Mexico to show how postrevolutionary murals have been overshadowed both by the Mexican School and by the exclusionary nature of official public arts. By documenting a range of mural practices from fixed-site murals to mantas (banner murals) to graffiti Bruce Campbell evaluates the ways in which the practical and aesthetic components of revolutionary Mexican muralism have been appropriated and redeployed within the context of Mexico s ongoing economic and political crisis. Four dozen photographs illustrate the text. Blending ethnography, political science, and sociology with art history, Campbell traces the emergence of modern Mexican mural art as a composite of aesthetic, discursive, and performative elements through which collective interests and identities are shaped. He focuses on mural activists engaged combatively with the state in barrios, unions, and street protests to show that mural arts that are neither connected to the elite art world nor supported by the government have made significant contributions to Mexican culture. Campbell brings all previous studies of Mexican muralism up to date by revealing the wealth of art that has flourished in the shadows of official recognition. His work shows that interpretations by art historians preoccupied with contemporary high art have been incomplete and that a rich mural tradition still survives, and thrives, in Mexico.
