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...

Latin American Art of the Twentieth Century ( World of Art Series)
Edward Lucie-Smith

From Library Journal
Since Columbus, each Latin American nation has mixed its native soil with outside influences and from this sculpted a vital corpus, with which few outsiders are well aquainted. To remedy this, well-known art historian Lucie-Smith manages to cover the last century or so of all Latin American art. Considering all that time and territory, he does a fairly good job. Familiar "isms" from Europe and the United States frequently acted only as catalysts for uniquely Latin American manifestations. For instance, Argentine Constructivism is distinct from Russian Constructivism. Readers are likely to find refreshing illustrations and discover many artists for the first time. Informative yet concise, this decent sampler fills a gap.- Susan M. Olcott, Columbus Metropolitan Lib., OhioCopyright 1993 Reed Business Information,...

Review
H-Net Reviews : Susannah Glusker's biography is a balanced and well-documented analysis of the middle period of her mother's life. She demonstrates that Brenner was a significant Latin American writer, a cultural hybrid and major figure in Mexico's cultural renaissance, and a political activist who sought successfully to document the dynamics of the country of her birth. This volume is informative and intriguing, and sheds light on Anita Brenner as a complex, assertive woman who, indeed, had "a mind of her own."

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...
