Descripción

Handsome photomontage poster advertising Benito Alazraki's 1954 film Raices (released in the United States with the title Roots). The film, now viewed as a landmark of Latin American filmmaking, was controversial for its realistic depiction of economic injustices against the indigenous peoples of Mexico. The acclaimed Spanish left-wing artist Josep Renau (1907-1982) was active in anti-Fascist propaganda campaigns during the Spanish Civil War; he was captured and briefly interned in the French concentration camp at Argeles-sur-Mer until his escape to Mexico in 1939. In Mexico he pursued a long and distinguished career as a muralist, painter, and political propagandist. Photomontage was always a central technique in his work; in 1966 he published his classic Fata Morgana USA: the American Way of Life, a book of photomontaged images highly critical of North American consumer culture. Renau relocated to East Germany in 1966, where he lived until his death. Original lithograph in colors, 94cm x 68.5cm (ca. 37" x 27"). Professionally mounted on archival linen. Slight toning to margins; old folds barely visible; still a bright, Near Fine copy, Condition A/A-. N° de ref. de la librería 14345
