[nice clean book with no discernible wear; jacket shows a touch of wear to a couple of upper corners, light surface-rubbing]. (color and B&W reproductions) An exploration of the life and work of Alfredo Ramos Martinez (1871-1946), who "fathered the great Mexican mural renaissance which made the names Orozco, Rivera and Siqueiros world-famous." The author "has traced the artist from his early years in Mexico through the period of his European studies and his return to Mexico, and finally to his climactic experience in the United States where he left a record of his finest work before he died." Laid in to this copy is a trifold brochure for an exhibition of Ramos Martinez's work presented at the Dalzell Hatfield Galleries in Los Angeles in October-November 1975; although not explicitly stated anywhere, it seems likely that this also provided the occasion for the publication of this book. I believe this was the first (and may still be the only) full-length book about the artist published in English. *** PLEASE NOTE that due to the weight of this book, additional shipping charges will be requested for overseas customers, or for Priority Mail shipping within the U.S.; if this concerns you, please contact us before placing your order, so we can quote you the accurate shipping cost.
