Summary:
"Octavio Paz probes the mystery of pre-Columbian art--it's 'otherness', its unique concept of time--and connects it to the ideas of Baudelaire and Nietzsche.

Abstract:

"Octavio Paz probes the mystery of pre-Columbian art--it's 'otherness', its unique concept of time--and connects it to the ideas of Baudelaire and Nietzsche. He tells the estory of Hermenegildo Bustos, a self-taught painter in a remote Mexican village, and compares his work to the sarcophagi portraits of the Egyptian Fayum. He demonstrates how the Mexican muralists--Rivera, Siqueiros, Orozco--were influenced by European Cubism, Fauvism, Expressionism, and how they in turn influenced American painters, Gorky, Rothko, Pollock. The abstract art of Tamayo evokes for him the music of Bela Bartók, and the canvases of María Izquierdo suggest the poetry of Apollinaire. In these fourteen wide-ranging essays, Paz makes art, philosophy, religion, and the history of the world converge as he celebrates the richness of Mexico"--Publisher's description, p. [2] of dust jacket.
