An extraordinary catalogue of the artwork of poster artist, photomonteur, muralist and writer Renau (b. Spain, 1907, lived and worked in Mexico, d. Germany, 1982), a pioneer of modern art in the Valencia of the Second Republic and of the photomontage technique as political propaganda instrument during the WW II. This book is considered a vindication of the forgotten left-wing intellectual who considered art as an instrument in the service of social revolution. ENGLISH AND CATALAN TEXTS.
