Most complete work to date on the artistic production of one of the great contributors to "La Ruptura" in Mexico, Alberto Gironella (1929-1999, Mexico). In his break from the established muralists, he received in 1960, the award for young artists at the Paris Biennial, and was regularly exhibited in Paris, Mexico , Madrid, and New York. Known as a surrealist, although in his later years his work was often considered postmodern and neo-baroque. Gironella painted his own surrealist versions of subjects as diverse as Emiliano Zapata and Madonna. Includes essays and critiques by leading art historians such as: Pierre Alechinsky, Juan Rafael Coronel Rivera, Mauricio López Valdés, Renato González Mello, Roberto Tejada, Olivier Debroise, Juan García Ponce, Carlos Fuentes and Eduardo Lizalde, among others.
