Diógenes Paredes. Threshers (Segadores). 1942

Diógenes Paredes Threshers (Segadores) 1942

  • Not on view

Here, Paredes depicts Ecuadorian workers threshing grain in the Andes mountains, rendering their hands especially large to emphasize their manual labor. Such scenes were part of the broader movement of Indigenismo, a cultural and political ideology that swept through Latin America in the 1940s, which sought to counter European colonial influence through an assertion of native identity.
