THE ART OF JUAN MANUEL BLANES. Octavio C. Assuncao et al. Americas Society Art Gallery, New York, 1994. Organized and published in association with Fundacion Bunge y Born, Buenos Aires. 212 pp. with 152 ills. (141 col.). 29 x 23 cm. LC 94-61047 ISBN 1879128098 In English.
Published in conjunction with an exhibition of works by noted Uruguayan painter Blanes (1830-1901) but not specifically documenting the show, this volume presents nearly 100 oils produced by the artist over the course of his career, the selection including examples of the portraits and depictions of Latin American historical events for which he is best known along with many of his idealized renderings of gaucho life. Fine color reproductions of the featured works accompany a substantial critical overview of Blanes's oeuvre and three essays discussing the artist's sojourn in Italy in the 1860s, the romantic concepts informing his representations of gauchos, and the affinities between his images of frontier life and those produced by such 19th-century American painters as Remington, Bingham and Eakins.
