PEDRO FIGARI, 1861-1938. Pavillon des Arts, Paris, 1992. Organized in association with Association Francaise d'Action Artistique, Ministere des Affaires Etrangeres, Paris, and Union Latine, Paris. Published in association with Paris-Musees. 176 pp. with 88 ills. (82 col.). 28 x 23 cm. LC 93-240433 ISBN 2879000688 In French.
Presents fine reproductions of more than 80 works by Uruguayan painter Figari, whose vibrant depictions of bourgeois social gatherings, life on the pampas and black folk culture in Uruguay reflect the influence of the artist's sojourn in Paris and his unique adaptation of the intimiste style of Bonnard and Vuillard. Supplemented with five critical texts written in the 1920s and 30s, two introductory essays (one reprinted) discuss Figari's multifaceted career as a lawyer, journalist, politician and painter and examine the relationship of his oeuvre to nativist trends in 1920s Uruguay.
