Paisaje / Ricardo Martínez de Hoyos

Gallery Label

Ricardo Martínez de Hoyos’s bucolic scene reflects a nationalistic tendency during this era to feature everyday people in works of art. Painted early in this self-taught artist’s career, the work also conveys the universal human joys of gathering in the countryside with loved ones, swimming on a warm day, flying kites, and playing with animals.

La escena bucólica de Ricardo Martínez de Hoyos refleja una tendencia nacionalista, de las obras artísticas durante esta época, de enfocarse en la gente común. Esta obra, pintada en los años tempranos de la carrera de este artista autodidacta, también transmite las alegrías humanas universales de reunirse en el campo con los seres queridos a nadar en un día de sol, a volar papalotes, y a jugar con animales.

From the exhibition: Mexican Modernism: Revolution & Reckoning, August 29, 2019 - August 30, 2020.
