"In interviews and photographic portraits, [the author] and [the photographer] bring together forty-nine of Mexico's most acclaimed artists in the performing, visual, and literary arts, displaying the creative energy of a nation. Invited into the artists' studios and work spaces, the author and photographer discuss with them individual conceptions of reality and their expression in media as diverse as paint, clay, stone, wood, pen, and theater. The portraits collectively uncover the tight web of interrelations existing among the arts and the artists of Mexico. Shared themes of myth and magic, church, politics, and death transcend the boundaries between forms as painters work with novelists, as poetry inspires sculptors, as acting moves fluidly into dance." ***NOTE: Additional shipping charges for this heavy book may apply for non-U.S. customers, or for Priority Mail shipping within the U.S.; if this causes you concern, please inquire before placing your order.***
