America, My Brother, My Blood/America, Mi Hermano, Mi Sangre: A Latin American Song of Suffering and Resistance/Un Canto Latinoamericano de Dolor y Re (Ocean Sur)by Pablo Neruda
Synopses & Reviews
“Guayasamín is one of the last crusaders of imaginismo. He is a creator of humanity in its broadest sense, of the living and historical imagination. His universe is sustaining although it threatens us like a cosmic disaster. Think before approaching his painting because it will not be easy to withdraw.”—Pablo Neruda
“To paint is to pray. To paint is to scream.”—Oswaldo Guayasamín
Two great masters combine to make an impassioned plea for the dignity and sovereignty of Latin America. Here Pablo Neruda’s incisive political words accompany the transcendent art of indigenous Ecuadorian painter Oswaldo Guayasamín. As firm friends and huge admirers of each other’s work, these two brilliant Latin American artists create a compelling portrait of a continent.
Uniting Neruda's CantoGeneral with Guayasamíns paintings, this is a visionary song to Latin America.
