Abstract :
Points to a tendency in Mexican art historical scholarship of the 20th c. to focus on large official and public art projects, while ignoring art that was not sponsored by the state. Deals with two paintings by Antonio Ruiz, both very small in size in contrast to the large mural paintings for which Mexican modern painting is known. Summer, 1937, refers to urban life, gender and modernity, while The Dream of Malinche, 1932, deals with the intimate rendering of history. Differences in style, choice of themes and rethinking the representation of myths results in a peculiar interpretation of the diverse ethnicities and cultures represented in the body of Malinche. ;
