Product Description


"The Social and the Real looks at 1930s art in a hemispheric context and fills a very real need.... Taken individually, the essays... represent important contributions to scholarship. Considered together, they enlarge in striking and unanticipated ways our understanding of the art of this period." - Alan Wallach, William and Mary College"
