From Library Journal
Long recognized as one of the preeminent painters of Mexico, Rufino Tamayo (1899-1991) stands apart from his contemporaries--Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Jos? Clemente Orozco--by virtue of his rejection of their nationalistic didacticism and his adherence to a vision within the broader currents of an international modernism. Tamayo's evocative imagery and extraordinary painterly refinement are sumptuously evoked in this volume's more than 200 excellent color reproductions. Unfortunately, the eight accompanying essays never rise above the level of the merely adequate. The best of the essays, by editor Conde, director of the Museum of Modern Art, Mexico City, engages in an interesting, if rather impressionistic, "dialog" between the author and earlier writers who have considered the artist's style,...

Book Description
This bilingual (English-Spanish) catalogue raisonné of Rufino Tumayo's prints will reproduce in color every print--including xylographies, lithographies, silkscreens, artist's books, and the late mixographies--ever made by the great Mexican artist. Tamayo made approximately 320 prints between 1925 and 1991. Many of them were made using different inks, and these ink colors are respected in the catalogue's printing; in several cases, the printing processes themselves will also be reproduced. Comprehensive and expert commentary is made on each print regarding print-run, workshop, and publisher. This project has taken the Tamayo Museum and Foundation in Mexico City almost ten years of research to complete. Edited by Juan Carlos Pereda.~Essays by Ramiro Martínez and Raquel Tibol.

Latin American Art of the Twentieth Century ( World of Art Series)
Edward Lucie-Smith
0500203563
October 2004
Paperback
·
 
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
"Full of insights into the evolution of Latin American art over the twentieth century, this is one of the most comprehensive evaluations one might find. Traba analyzes the arts against the social, political, and economic forces of the times. In addition to many artists already familiar to most of our readers (Orozco, Rivera, Siqueiros, et al.), there are a great many that will be new to them. An important book for the student/historian of Latin American art." -- Art Times

Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
In this unusual book, well-known artbook author Theran (e.g., The Official Price Guide to Fine Art) gives the auction prices for Latin American art over the last 30-plus years in more than 20,000 sales results. Auction prices come from the publisher's database, which is compiled from auction catalogs, mostly representing the major sales at the prominent North American and European venues. A few very important artists, e.g., Frida Kahlo, Rufio Tamayo, and Wifred Lam, are tracked to show the amazing growth of interest in Latin American art. In addition, a section on how to use the book explains how auction prices relate to the value of the artist's work. Biographies of 1,131 artists, some never before discussed in English, are also included, along with a consideration of the Latin American art market and Latin...


Mary: Images of the Holy Mother

Book Review
Mary: Images of the Holy Mother is Jacqueline Orsini's beautiful, succinct, pictorial survey of art history's many incarnations of the Virgin Mother, from a fresco in the Roman catacombs to a modern mural in San Francisco. The book is organized chronologically, collecting reproductions of Mary's constantly transforming image in Byzantine, Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Counter Reformation, and various 20th century movements. Artists represented in the book include Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Van Gogh, Chagall, and Gauguin. At every stage in this evolution, Orsini's compilation of images is guided by her conviction that "Mary transcends the media, the temporal and regional restrictions, and human limitations that govern her image in any one era. The meaning of the icon outweighs the individual artist or...
