Manuel Alvarez Bravo: El Maestro de Modernismo

Manuel Alvarez Bravo: El Maestro de Modernismo at Throckmorton Fine Art. "...He began his career as a young photographer in the 1920’s in post-revolutionary Mexico. With the emergence of Mexico City as an international center, artists and intellectuals, celebrated the avantgarde and their indigenous past. Through association with and recognition by such luminaries as Tina Modotti, Edward Weston, Paul Strand, and Henri Cartier-Bresson, Manuel was able to work within a wide range of styles and subject matter including: formalist abstraction, architecture, interiors, landscapes, still lifes, and portraits. Bravo, influenced by the indigenous culture of Mexico, also remained open to the artistic influences outside his native country."
