WIFREDO LAM AND HIS CONTEMPORARIES, 1938-1952. Kinshasha Holman Conwill et al. Studio Museum in Harlem, New York, 1992. Distributed by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York. 176 pp. with 168 ills. (41 col.). 28 x 22 cm. LC 92-62642 ISBN 0810925486 In English.
Offering a detailed appraisal of a pivotal period in Lam's career during which he achieved a pioneering synthesis of European Modernist aesthetics and Latin American themes and motifs, this catalogue presents 54 figurative paintings and drawings by the celebrated Cuban artist (1902-1982) along with some 50 contemporaneous works by Pollock, Appel, Gottlieb and other well-known figures and by eleven Cuban artists. Four substantial essays include a chronicle of the evolution of Lam's unique style and themes as influenced by his contacts with Surrealist artists in France and Spain in the 1930s and by his years in Havana from 1941 to 1952, an analysis of his complex links to both the Abstract Expressionists and the postwar School of Paris, and a review of the development of modern Cuban art.
