Contemporary Mexican Artists

JULIO CASTELLANOS
Born Mexico City, 1905

GEORGE BOAS, in reviewing on the Pan-American Art Exhibition in Baltimore at which fourteen countries of the Americas, with a total of a hundred and thirty-four painters, were represented, wrote: "Though Mexico sent a Rivera and an Orozco, they were in no sense of the word the best or most typical products of these men. The Castellanos 'Woman Washing a Child' is a much better picture than either of theirs." Universal attention then began to be paid to Julio Castellanos.

This young artist, compelled by his thirst for wider horizons and broader fields in which to develop his personality, interrupted his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts of the City of Mexico to travel through America and Europe. He has held exhibitions of his paintings in Buenos Aires, Paris and New York City.

He took part in the Mexican Art Exhibition held in 1931 in eight different cities of the United States under the patronage of the American Federation of Arts; in the traveling exhibition patronized by the College Arts Association in 1934; as well as in the exhibitions of contemporary Mexican art sent by the Mexican Art Gallery of the City of Mexico to Seattle, Washington and Cambridge, in 1936.

He has done lithographs and designed theater decorations for plays given during the 1934 season at the Palace of Fine Arts under the direction of Antonio Castro Leal. For several years he has been a teacher of the Plastic Arts Department in the Ministry of Public Education.

His drawings, characterized by simplicity and precision of outline, by well-balanced forms with soft lines, have appeared in Mexico in different literary journals and magazines of the plastic arts. Cardoza y Aragon has said: "They express sensibility; but even more than sensibility, talent. In them his voice is moreintimate, and more persuasive, more strictly submissive to line andshadow."
