DAVID A. SIQUEIROS
IV, De la Carpeta Canto General.
Lithograph, 1968. 1040x600 mm; 41x23 3/4 inches, full margins. Artist's proof, aside from the unsigned regular edition of 200. Signed in white pencil, lower right, and inscribed "b/j arches" in pencil, lower left. Published by Mourlot, Paris. A superb, dark impression of this large lithograph.
Canto General was Pablo Neruda's tenth book of poems, first published in Mexico in 1950, and illustrated with designs by Neruda's artist friends Siqueiros and Diego Rivera. The work consists of 15 sections, 231 poems and more than 15,000 lines, and attempts to be an encyclopedia of the entire American Western Hemisphere, or New World, from an Hispanic-American perspective. Following its first publication in 1950, Neruda and Siqueiros reunited to produce a portfolio of 10 large lithographs by Siqueiros, one of which is the current work, and selections from the poem by Neruda.
