  • Marius de Zayas: Conjurer of Souls
  • 27-Sep-1981 - 08-Nov-1981
  • Spencer Museum of Art, University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas

The Mexican-born artist de Zayas earned the reputation for being New York's leading caricaturist during the first quarter of this century. His creative portraits of the leading figures of his day are regarded as triumphs of psychological penetration. This exhibition of his paintings, drawings, and graphic work, supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, is presented in conjunction with a national conference of Latin American Studies at the University of Kansas. A catalogue by Douglas Hyland, who organized the exhibition, will be available.
