Manuel Alvarez Bravo Aperture Masters of Photography, Bravo, Manuel Alvarez; With an Essay By A.D. Coleman
11 Bravo, Manuel Alvarez; With an Essay By A.D. Coleman Manuel Alvarez Bravo Aperture Masters of Photography
NJ Aperture Foundation Inc 1987 0893813028 / 9780893813024 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine Near Fine Book 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Photographs 
Collectible first printing 1987. NF in like dj in new mylar. Corners lightly bumped. 93 pp. Quarter bound black cloth on black paper covered boards, silver lettering. white endpps. Manuel Alvarez Bravo began photographing in 1924, during Mexico's thriving post-revolutionary artistic renaissance. His influences, from indigenous cultures to contemporary European trends, combined through his artistry to form a unique, transcendent vision rooted in the iconography of his country. While his early work embraced Mexico's urban realities, its peasants and workers, and its hauntingly beautiful landscape, Alvarez Bravo's ever-present acknowledgment of the macabre prompted André Breton, the leader of Surrealism in France, to claim him as an exponent of the movement. Prolific, uncompromising, and committed to advancing the arts of his country, nevertheless, public recognition eluded Alvarez Bravo, even in Mexico, until the 1970s, when his photographs were exhibited at the Pasadena Art Museum in California and at New York's Museum of Modern Art, in 1971. But it was not until 1997 that his work became widely known through a definitive exhibit of 185 photographs at the Museum of Modern Art and the simultaneous publication by Aperture of Manuel Alvarez Bravo: Photographs and Memories.Manuel Alvarez Bravo won his first award in 1931, and then decided to pursue photography as a career. He met André Breton in 1939, and his work was subsequently included in Surrealist exhibitions in Paris. In 1942, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, acquired their first works by Alvarez Bravo; in 1955, his photographs were included in Edward Steichen's Family of Man exhibition at MoMa. In 1959 Alvarez Bravo co-founded the Fondo Editorial de la Plástica Mexicana, with the goal of publishing books on Mexican art, which he co-directed until 1980, and from 1980 to 1986, he devoted his time to founding and developing the collection of the first Mexican Museum of Photography. Alvarez Bravo is the recipient of the Sourasky Art Prize (1974), the National Art Prize (Mexico, 1975), a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship (1975), the Victor and Erna Hasselblad Prize (1984), and the International Center of Photography's Master of Photography Award (1987).

With few exceptions, the collection of over 500 complete or nearly complete objects - the great majority published here for the first time - and a representative selection of fragments are studied and illustrated in the present volume, about 250 of which deserve closer attention and are examined in extensive entries; the remainder is fully described without discussion. This work is therefore a useful reference tool as a descriptive catalogue, in addition to providing a better understanding of Islamic glass in general - both in the framework of the Islamic artistic vocabulary and of glass production worldwide.
