PAINT THE REVOLUTION: MEXICAN MODERNISM, 1910-1950. Matthew Affron. Philadelphia Museum of Art, 2016. Published by Yale University Press, New Haven. 428 pp. with 370 ills. (350 col.). 31 x 24 cm. ISBN 9780300215229 In English.
Publisher's description: In the wake of the 1910-20 Revolution, Mexico emerged as a center of modern art, closely watched around the world. Highlighted are the achievements of the tres grandes (three greats) -- Jose Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siqueiros -- and other renowned figures such as Rufino Tamayo and Frida Kahlo, but the book goes beyond these well-known names to present a fuller picture of the period from 1910 to 1950. Fourteen essays by authors from both the United States and Mexico offer a thorough reassessment of Mexican modernism from multiple perspectives. Some of the texts delve into thematic topics -- developments in mural painting, the role of the government in the arts, intersections between modern art and cinema, and the impact of Mexican art in the United States -- while others explore specific modernist genres -- such as printmaking, photography, and architecture. This beautifully illustrated book offers a comprehensive look at the period that brought Mexico onto the world stage during a period of political upheaval and dramatic social change.
