Celebrating revolutionary art and banned books in defiance of fascism

A Photo Of A Wall In My Apartment Filled With Art And Memories From Long Ago:
Celebrating revolutionary art and banned books in defiance of fascism

By Lynda Carson - June 5, 2024

Celebrating revolutionary art, and fighting back against the attack and the banning of books by the right wing fascists, is part of the never ending struggle, that makes me feel good on a daily basis.

The photo above of a wall in my apartment is a celebration of artists, including some former revolutionary artists from the revolutionary artist’s collective known as the Taller de Grafica Popular. The above photo appears the same as it did years ago, except that a flat screen TV now sits where the old tube (CRT) television once sat years ago.

Behind the TV and near the TV on the right, are 2 beautiful very rare old signed lithographs from the 50s. They are by 2 well known artists from the Taller de Grafica Popular, including a signed lithograph by Alberto Beltran called “Grinding Sugar Cane,”, and the famed artist Raul Anguiano with his beautiful signed lithograph called, "Cabeza de la Mujer (Portrait of Na Kin),” and it may also be seen here.

Another very rare signed lithograph by the famed artist Francisco Dosamantes, of the Taller de Grafica Popular in the 50s called “Tres Mujeres,” sits to the very far left side of the above photo of my apartment, next to an old handmade Native American guitar.

As for some of the other art in my apartment, the Buddha from Japan stands for peace, the peacock from India is associated with peace, prosperity, and happiness, the handmade dulcimer with two carved hearts in it from Arizona is a symbol of love, the old rice print from the 70s from Nepal of the wiseman sitting under a tree stands for peace and wisdom, and the old Lucky Strike cigarette box is there to remind me that I am very lucky to have a roof over my head, and just in case to remind me how lucky I am that I quit smoking cigarettes many years ago.

Being a very poor person financially, I feel grateful and very lucky to have some beautiful art work and posters on the walls of my apartment that help me to feel better in these very grim times that we find ourselves in.

The news is often so grim, but lately I really enjoyed seeing the orange Trump monster get nailed for 34 felony counts in New York City recently. Many thanks to the beautiful jurors who nailed Trump, and who were not intimidated by the fascist Republicans appearing in court trying to intimidate them from convicting Trump, including the totally despicable “Speaker of the House,” Mike Johnson. On July 11, I hope the judge sentences Trump to jail or prison for his crimes, and perhaps the idiotic Trump supporter Evangelist Franklin Graham, may have to realize that Trump needs to be accountable for his crimes.

It’s also a pleasure to enjoy the photos, and the rare vintage posters on my apartment walls reminding me of when the people demonstrated and protested to save KPFA radio back during the summer of 1999 (25 years ago), from Pacifica, to distract me from the grim news happening on a daily basis.

In celebration of the revolutionary anti-fascist artists of the Taller de Grafica Popular, more about some of the artwork by them that I have may be found by clicking on some of the links below, in addition to some links to some of the rare posters adorning the walls of my apartment that help to make me feel better in these grim times we find ourselves in… What a world.

Leopoldo Mendez

https://www.mmoca.org/learn/teaching-pages/leopoldo-mendez/

Leopoldo Méndez led and co-founded Mexico’s most famous printmaking collective, the Taller de Gráfica Popular (TGP) (the Popular Graphic Arts Workshop). A virtuosic printmaker himself, Méndez used his artwork to further the causes of agrarian reforms, Indigenous rights, and anti-fascism. He and the other members of the TGP initiated a tradition of activist printmaking that continues in Mexico to this day.

Leopoldo Mendez

Leopoldo Méndez (June 30, 1902 – February 8, 1969) was one of Mexico's most important graphic artists and one of that country's most important artists from the 20th century. Méndez's work mostly focused on engraving for illustrations and other print work generally connected to his political and social activism. His most influential work was connected to organizations such as the Liga de Escritores y Artistas Revolucionarios and the Taller de Gráfica Popular creating propaganda related to the ideals of the Mexican Revolution and against the rise of Fascism in the 1930s. Despite his importance in 20th-century artistic and political circles, Méndez was a relatively obscure figure during his lifetime. The reasons for this generally relate to the fact that he believed in working collaboratively and anonymously for the good of society rather than for monetary gain and because the socialist and communist themes of his work fell out of favor with later generations. He has received posthumous recognition with a major biography, and scholarship considers him to be the heir to graphic artist José Guadalupe Posada.

Some signed lithographs by a few revolutionary artists that I have

By Lynda Carson

In some quarters of life, most people have probably never heard of the famed revolutionary artists including Leopoldo Mendez, Pablo O’Higgins, Raul Anguiano, Alberto Beltran, or Francisco Dosamantes. It’s not as though they have become household names through the years.

But in the world of art, higher education, art classes, museums, and auction houses, apparently their artwork is well known, and highly sought after.

Sorry that I did not give much information about them further above, and hope that for those who may be interested, the following information below may shed a little light on these great revolutionary artists.

They have each passed away a number of years ago, but their artwork and legacy remains as a reminder of the art and beauty they brought to this planet while they were still alive, while they were connected to the great artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo long ago.

I have had the signed lithographs in my possession for the past 38 years, and they have brought great joy, beauty, and wonderment into my life through the years while they hang on the wall of my apartment.

For what it's worth. I feel lucky to have saved them from a dumpster many years ago after they were tossed out in Berkeley by some people who worked for the "Peoples Daily World" at the time, when the newspaper packed up and moved out of Berkeley. They threw many things away into a dumpster in the process.

I took the lithographs home after I found them in the dumpster, and hung them up on the walls of my apartment. I really liked them for some reason. However, it took me a very long time before I actually realized what I had, that I have managed to save from the dumpster so many years ago. It was years later after I got a computer and figured out how to use it for doing some research, that I discovered that they were some famous artists from the legendary Taller de Grafica Popular. I gave a few of the signed lithographs away through the years by some great artists to some friends, but have somehow managed to save "5 of them" during the past 38 years... What a world.

See a few links below…

Sincerely,

-Lynda Carson

Mexican exhibit sheds light on lives of Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera

Published May 7, 2016 7:30pm

MEXICO CITY —  For more than 50 years, intimate photos and documents belonging to Mexico's Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera had been locked away in their private Mexico City resident.
Now, new personal letters, manuscripts, official documents and photographs are on display in Rivera's former San Angel studio and home which he once shared with Kahlo.

Espinoza explained the exhibit intends to show rare material belonging to Kahlo, Rivera, Gabriel Fernandez Ledesma, Isabel Villasenor, Francisco Goitia and Leopoldo Mendez and expose significant connections between their communications.

"To see and explore aspects of these important artists like Diego and Frida, as well as Leopoldo Mendez, etc. Diverse aspects that belong to their intimate life. You'll see in some documents that they were written in this area and on these furnishings and they are returning here," said academic co-ordinator of the project, Carlos Guevara.

Pablo O’Higgins

Pablo O’Higgins (1904-83) was actually born under the name Paul Higgins in Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1904. His family had migrated westward for the opportunities offered by the expansion known as Manifest Destiny. O’Higgins attended Salt Lake City public schools including East High School, where he was influenced by his teacher LeConte Stewart. In 1924, he traveled to Mexico City to see the murals Diego Rivera was painting. O’Higgins became an assistant to Rivera, working with him on several of his most famous mural projects before becoming a muralist in his own right. He co-founded Mexico’s most important printmaking studio, the Taller de Grafica Popular. Today, Mexico considers him one of the most important muralists of its “second generation” of mural painters. O’Higgins became a Mexican citizen in 1961.

Brushes With Greatness : Mexican Muralist and Bowers Supporters Meet Over a Wall
By KATHRYN BOLD
Jan. 12, 1999 12 AM PT

The event: A reception for renowned Mexican muralist Raul Anguiano, held Thursday at the Bowers Museum of Cultural Art in Santa Ana. Anguiano put the first brush strokes on a mural that will become a permanent addition to the Bowers’ collection and the first example of the artist’s work in the United States.

Painting for posterity: More than 200 guests witnessed art history in the making when they gathered to watch Anguiano begin the 180-inch-by-100-inch mural.

Putting it in perspective: Raul Anguiano, who in Mexico is considered a living treasure, is a contemporary of artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. His works can be found around the world, from the Vatican to Mexico City’s Museo de Antropologia.

https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1999-jan-12-cl-62884-story.html

Raúl Anguiano was born in Guadalajara, Mexico, where he studied art and became interested in both ancient Mexican and contemporary popular art. In 1934, he moved to Mexico City, where he met Diego Rivera and José Clemente Orozco, and created his first large-scale mural. In 1937, he joined the Liga de Escritores y Artistas Revolucionarios (League of Revolutionary Writers and Artists) and cofounded the Taller de Gráfica Popular (Popular Graphic Workshop), an artists’ print collective.

"The figures in these three powerful works representing various aspects of rural life in Mexico are reminiscent of the proletarian protagonists of many of Eisentstein's films and their struggles against economic privation and political domination. The camaraderie and teamwork of Diego Rivera's "Haymakers" stands in stark contrast to the shared desperation of the women in Dosmante's "Gathering Up Kernels", while the mystery of the story unfolding in Orozco's "Marching Women" conjure the uncertainty and foreboding of war and displacement." -from the informative plaque to the right of the three works.
