Described in 1930 by Diego Rivera as “the greatest contemporary Mexican sculptor,” Mardonio Magaña represents the vigorous persistence of the rural and campesino tradition in twentieth-century Mexican art.
This book constitutes an exhaustive catalogue of the work in wood and stone of this unusual and little-known master. It also contains a selection of texts about Magaña –including a brief essay by Rivera himself–, along with sixty pages of color photographs, a sampling of vintage black-and-white photographs, a chronology of the life of the sculptor, and an extensive bibliography.
