Mexico: Una Vision de Su Paisaje/A Landscape Revisited

by , ,

The dramatic landscape of Mexico has inspired generations of Mexican painters. In the art of the past, Mexican landscape held the secondary role of scenic backdrop for historic and religious themes. Over the course of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, however, attitudes changed toward the landscape, and it became a venerated subject for painting. The significance and recent resurgence of landscape painting in Mexico is examined here by contributors Esther Acevedo, independent curator, Mexico City, and Mary Schneider Enriquez, arts critic for Mexico, "ARTnews" Magazine. "Mexico: A Landscape Revisited" additionally features biographies of the artists as well as a chronology highlighting important events in Mexican history and art. Lavishly illustrated with full-color images, this volume introduces a powerful visual vocabulary of form and color that is uniquely Mexican. Its in-depth look at Mexican landscape painting imparts a greater appreciation of the genre and brings the reader closer to the country and countryside that is its source and inspiration. Los espectaculares paisajes de Mexico han inspirado a generaciones de pintores mexicanos. En el arte del pasado, el paisaje mexicano ocupo el lugar secundario de fondo para los temas historicos y religiosos. A lo largo de los siglos XIX y XX, sin embargo, cambio la actitud frente al paisaje, que se convirtio en un sujeto venerado por los pintores. La significacion y el reciente resurgimiento de la pintura paisajistica en Mexico son examinados en esta obra por Esther Acevedo, curadora independiente de la ciudad de Mexico, y Mary Schneider Enriquez, critica del arte de Mexico para la revista "ARTnews." "Mexico: Unavision de su paisaje" contiene asimismo biografias de los artistas y una cronologia en la que se destacan los principales acontecimientos ocurridos en la historia y en el arte de Mexico. Profusamente ilustrado con imagenes a todo color, este volumen introduce un poderoso vocabulario visual de formas y colores que es singularmente mexicano. Su profundo analisis de la pintura paisajistica mexicana contribuye a una mejor apreciacion de este genero y acerca al lector al pais y a la campina que constituyen la fuente de su inspiracion.
