Rubén Gallo, Director of the Latin American Studies Program at Princeton and Professor of Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Cultures, recently highlighted an acquisition in the Graphic Arts Collection of thirty-four paintings and drawings by the novelist, critic, poet, and visual artist Severo Sarduy (1937-1993). Professor Gallo’s article, “Un cubano en Princeton,” appears in a recent issue of Ñ, the cultural supplement of the Argentine daily Clarín:
“Un cubano en Princeton” by Rubén Gallo
The Sarduy collection is also featured in two articles in the most recent issue of the Princeton University Library Chronicle (Vol. LXXII, no. 3, 2012):
“Moctezuma’s Revenge, or Severo Sarduy in Princeton” by Rubén Gallo.
“Biography of a Few Paintings” by François Wahl (translated by Françoise Gramet and Richard Sieburth).
The original French text of Wahl’s reminiscence can be accessed online: “Biographie de quelques tableaux.”
