Guayasamin: The Time That I Have Had to Live
Guayasamin, Oswaldo; Yanez-Barnuevo, Luis (Preface)
Ibero-American Corporation Institute
Notes: Near Fine 11" x 12" glossy cream white pictorial boards featuring a 4" x 4" full-color reproduction of one of Oswaldo Guayasamin's paintings to the cover with grey titling to cover and spine, publisher's stamps to front and back cover, bumping to top of spine, three small dents to back cover top and bottom edges, 4" slim line indentation to cover without discoloration, sharp tips, clean, unmarked, tightly bound and otherwise undamaged throughout. This is the second edition English-language text. Unpaginated, replete with full-color photographs of the artist at work in his studio, full-color reproductions of Guayasamin's paintings and drawings, including several multi-panel fold-out pages, and peppered with quotes from the artist that read like prose and work to give context to art born in anguish that rises toward hopefulness. Includes a Preface by Luis Yanez-Barnuevo, State Secretary for International Cooperation and for Ibero-America, and a complete Index of all 281 Works herein included. Ecuadorian-born Oswaldo Guayasamin's Cubist-style graphic portraiture of Latin-American people is designed to be striking, even disturbing in its frankness; in the artist's own words: "My painting is to hurt, to scratch and hit inside people's hearts. To show what Man does against Man." Of impressively sumptuous construction, this book works as both a map of the artist's humanistic philosophy and as a chronology of his life and work.
