Summary
"Nicaraguan-born Roberto de la Selva (18951957) moved to Mexico City in 1921 in protest against U.S. military occupation. He stayed for the rest of his life. 2In a period when Diego Rivera and Pablo Picasso were the worlds most powerful artists, Mexico was where the action waswhere modernism and politics intersected,3 said curator Marion Oettinger Jr. De la Selva studied art at Mexico Citys Academy of San Carlos and apprenticed as a wood craftsman in Apizaco. Working in dense white mahogany, he produced bas-relief panels that meld traditional woodworkinga prized pre-Hispanic craftwith modernist painting and the social zeitgeist of post-revolutionary Mexico. 'His message of the new order honoring folk art, indigenous people, and the working class helped shape that periods understanding of what Mexico was about,' said Oettinger. The small exhibition includes seven large-scale bas-reliefs and six smaller reliefs"--Samuseum.org, viewed December 9, 2016
