Exploring the significant role of Mexico and Mexican art in the formation of modernism in the USA, Landau looks in detail at the Mexican experiences of four major American artists: Isamu Noguchi, Philip Guston, Jackson Pollock and Robert Motherwell. The chapters on Noguchi and Guston focus on their social and political sympathies during the Depression era; on Pollock, Landau discusses his Mexican-related iconographic experiments in New York; and her study of Motherwell examines the influence of Surrealist expatriate circles.
