ARMANDO REVERÓN (1889-1954)
This first major publication on Reverón in English accompanies an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art in early 2007. A critical essay by the curator of the exhibition, John Elderfield, The Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum, offers a newly comprehensive account of the artist's development in the context of modern art. The consultant on the exhibition, Luis Pérez-Oramas, The Estrellita Brodsky Curator of Latin American Art, The Museum of Modern Art, examines Reverón's place in Latin American art. Introductory texts by Nora Lawrence, Curatorial Assistant in the Department of Painting and Sculpture, The Museum of Modern Art, accompany the more than one hundred works—paintings, drawings, and objects—illustrated in the catalogue. An autobiographical statement by Reverón and an interview with him, a bibliographical note, and an index conclude the publication.
