THE TRUE POETRY: THE ART OF MARIA IZQUIERDO. Elizabeth Ferrer et al. Americas Society Art Gallery, New York, 1997. Distributed by University of Arizona Press, Tucson. 128 pp. with 85 ills. (64 col.). 30 x 23 cm. LC 97-71380 ISBN 1879128152 In English; three essays also in Spanish.
Celebrating the achievements of pioneering Mexican painter Izquierdo (1902-1955) through a presentation of 64 oils, gouaches and watercolors dating from 1928 to 1954, this catalogue features fine reproductions of portraits, still lifes, depictions of peasant scenes and circus performers, and allegorical compositions that reflect her fusion of Mexican folk art traditions and modernist aesthetics. Three essays include a substantial critical chronicle of Izquierdo's career, a discussion of her status as a woman in the Mexican art world of the 1930s and 40s, and an assessment of the influence of Rufino Tamayo on the development of her oeuvre.
