On May 8, 1999, I visited with Maestro Zalce in his studio and recorded his answers to several questions with a digital camera capable of recording moving video along with audio for placement on my web page. Several of my questions were concerned with other Mexican Master Artists, all deceased, who were among Zalce’s friends. Below, you can see and hear Maestro Zalce as he answers those somewhat historical questions.
Unfortunately, each sound bite can last a maximum of one minute, so although Zalce knew he needed to finish within the minute time limit, he occasionally ran over by a few words—which were lost.
By clicking below and waiting a few minutes to complete the necessary downloading, you will see and hear Zalce himself as he describes (in Spanish) the personality and/or character of his friends; Rivera, Orozco, Siqueiros, Kahlo, Tamayo, O’Higgins--and himself.
You can then store it on your hard drive to avoid the downloading time again in the future (Right mouse click on moving picture before it stops, then store in a place of your choise using "save as" -- plan ahead).
In some cases you will need to download free software to make your computer
capable of properly accessing MPEG movies (possibly from "download.com" or
such as "Microsoft Media Player").
