At the forefront of the social revolution that transformed Mexico during the first half of the twentieth century were three artists whose murals resonated throughout the Americas and beyond: José Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siqueiros. This latest volume in the MoMA Artist Series looks at ten important works by these artists from The Museum of Modern Art's pioneering collection of Latin American art. Engaging essays on each work provide fresh and innovative readings placing the paintings in local and international contexts. This richly illustrated volume is an excellent introduction to the art and ideas of these influential artists.
Paperback. 48 pages. 35 illustrations.
James Oles is adjunct curator of Latin American art at the Davis Museum and senior lecturer in the Art Department, Wellesley College.
