Alfredo Ramos Martinez (1872-1946): An exhibition in honour of Maria Martinez Bolster
Louis Stern Fine Arts, Los Angeles
30 April – 11 July 2015
A display of drawings and paintings by the Mexican artist who having trained in Paris was made head of the National Academy in Mexico City in 1913, where he supervised the enrollment of the young muralist David Siqueiros amongst others and influenced the Modernist artist Rufino Tamayo. The works on show are from the 1930s and 1940s when Ramos Martinez had settled in Los Angeles, whilst he was seeking medical assistance for his young daughter crippled with a bone disease, though the imagery is inspired by the Mexican landscape and people. The Louis Stern Galleries represents the artist’s estate.
