ABOUT THIS BOOK:
The Epic of American Civilization by José Clemente Orozco, painted between 1932 and 1934, is one of Dartmouth's greatest artistic resources. As Professor Mary Coffey writes in the Hood Museum of Art's publication Orozco at Dartmouth: "José Clemente Orozco reorients the 'epic of America' from the standard US narrative that begins with British colonization along the northeastern seaboard and proceeds heroically west to a Mexican story rooted in Mesoamerican civilizations and the devastation wrought by the Spanish Conquest . . . Orozco presents America's epic as cyclical in nature, the eternal return of destruction and creation, rather than a linear tale of democratic expansion and progress."(Publisher). Good +. Item #7885
