EN CALAVERA: THE PAPIER-MACHE ART OF THE LINARES FAMILY. Susan N. Masuoka. Fowler Museum of Cultural History, University of California, Los Angeles, 1994. 176 pp. with 198 ills. (96 col., 4 foldout). 27 x 23 cm. LC 94-36635 ISBN 0930741404 In English.
Surveying works created by three generations of a Mexican family of folk artists whose expressive, brightly painted papier-mache sculptures have achieved international recognition, this catalogue showcases more than 60 individual pieces and sculptural groups produced from the 1950s through the 1990s by Pedro Linares (1906-1992) and his sons and grandsons, the selection including many animated skeleton figures (calaveras) and fantastic animal forms. Reproductions of the featured sculptures and documentary photographs accompany an extensive text that discusses the Linares' techniques, workshop practices and patronage and traces their imagery to such diverse sources as Aztec artifacts, Mexican fiesta traditions, the satirical prints of Posada and contemporary popular culture.
