Mexican Muralists: Orozco, Rivera, Siqueiros

Paperback

Book Review
In Mexico in the early 1920s, a growing, collective social consciousness gave rise to a revolutionary furor focused on liberating the country's workers from harsh conditions and poverty. In 1921, Mexican artists Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros were all commissioned by the government to create educational paintings on the walls of public buildings. After that initial experience, they devoted themselves almost exclusively to painting these large-scale murals--forming the foundation of a movement that would last 50 years. The muralists' work took up the themes of society and revolution. Often the paintings depicted historical vignettes like the story of Cuernavaca and Morelos crossing the barranca, or Mexico's ancient Indians. They satirized contemporary society, created ideal visions of...


Jose Clemente Orozco: Mexican Artist

From School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-A fair and well-rounded introduction to the great muralist and highly influential 20th-century artist. Cruz clearly illustrates how Orozco's prodigious talent and dedication to perfecting his craft eclipsed the injuries he suffered as a teenager that caused him to lose one hand and injure the other. Many of the artist's works are mentioned and given brief but enlightening interpretations. The author clearly explains the controversial themes of Orozco's works, which often dealt with sensitive political and social issues. There are many black-and-white photos and a few pertinent quotations from Orozco himself, family members, and friends. The book has extensive chapter notes and a list for further reading, both evidence of its scholarly format that nevertheless remains approachable. This accessible...

Jose Clemente Orozco in the United States

From Library Journal
Containing 11 essays, numerous illustrations, and extensive notes, this catalog accompanies a traveling exhibition that explores Mexican artist Orozco's productivity while visiting the United States between 1927 and 1934. During this time of self-imposed exile, the renowned social realist muralist departed from themes focused on the Mexican Revolution and rural life, which had defined his previous work. He won commissions from various U.S. institutions, including the New School in New York City and Dartmouth College, by concentrating on modern urban subjects: workers, unemployment, and the economic depression that began in 1929. His politically charged works from this period, like those of his colleagues Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros, include drawings, paintings, prints, and easel paintings, as well as...

The Pearl

From Library Journal
Kino, a poor Mexican pearl fisher, finds a valuable pearl. Yet instead of bringing blessings, the pearl acts as a harbinger of misfortune to Kino and his wife, Juana. Ultimately, it is returned from whence it came. Steinbeck's parable, originally published in 1947, is a well-written retelling of an old Mexican folktale. Hector Elizondo, with his fine voice and great diction, reads with sincerity, keeping this simple, tragic tale moving toward its inevitable conclusion. Highly recommended for all collections.Denise A. Garofalo, Mid-Hudson Lib. System, Poughkeepsie, N.Y.Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.

In intimate, whispery tones Elizondo relates the tragic tale of how a priceless...
