"Volcán Paricutín", a pencil drawing by Alfredo Zalce.


...
EL PARICUTÍN, Alfredo Zalce 1949 , Oil on canvas, 27.5 x 40.75 inches (70 x 103.5 cm)

ESPAÑOL: Esta obra preeminente del Gran Maestro Zalce ha estado en numerosas exposiciones y ha sido publicada en numerosos libros y revistas. Representa la erupción del Volcán Paricutín (cerca de Uruapan, Michoacán, México, que estuvo activo continualmente entre 1948 y 1952, convirtiéndolo en el único volcán en la historia de la humanidad cuyo nacimiento y extinción pudo ser examinado, convirtiéndola en una de las 7 maravillas del mundo natural.

Zalce, originario de Michoacán, empatizó con la gente que huía de sus aldeas mientras la lava cubría sus hogares y negocios y como la ceniza obstruía sus provisiones de agua. La erupción fue acompañada de pequeños terremotos durante los cuales muchos cayeron de rodillas, temiendo que el final pudiera estar cerca.

En primer plano se pueden ver tres de los mejores artistas de México; Diego Rivera, Raúl Anguiano y Gerardo Murillo (Dr. Atl--de rodillas). Estuvieron entre los artistas que pintaron el Paricutín para vender a los turistas. Zalce los pintó en caricatura, expresando su emoción de que la tragedia fuera usada para su enriquecimiento (aunque fueran todos sus amigos).


ENGLISH: This preeminent work of Grand Maestro Zalce has been in numerous exhibitions and has been published in countless books and publications. It represents the eruption of the volcano Paricutín (near Uruapan, Michoacán, Mexico), which was active constantly between 1948 and 1952, the only volcano in the history of mankind whose birth and extinction could be examined, making it one of the 7 wonders of the natural world.

Zalce, born in Michoacan, empathized with the people fleeing from their villages as the lava covered their homes and businesses and as the ash clogged their water supplies. The eruption was accompanied by small earthquakes during which many dropped to their knees, fearing that the end might be near.

In the foreground may be seen three of Mexico’s greatest artists; Diego Rivera, Raul Anguiano, and Gerardo Murillo (Dr. Atl--seated on ground). They were among the numerous artists who painted Paricutín to sell to the tourists. Zalce painted them in caricature, expressing his emotion that the tragedy was being used for their enrichment (although they were all his friends).
