UM REGISTRO HISTÓRICO E SOCIAL GRAVADO EM XILOGRAVURAS: GRUPO DE BAGÉ E CLUBE DA GRAVURA DE PORTO ALEGRE

Norberto Stori, Petra Sanchez Sanchez

Abstract


The woodcuts created by the “gaucho” artists of the Bagé Group and Engraving Club in the 1950 decade, are an historical and social record of rural workers, slaughters and miners of a given region State of Rio Grande do Sul. These are works with truly expressive works and not mere illustrations of the day to day life. These woodcuts developed, in wire woods, clean, strong and synthetic cuts were prepared with fluctuations of light and shadow. The process of the woodcut, through the multiplication of images increases according to their deployment, since it allows familiarity possibilities without, social and cultural barriers, with images and concepts which transmute a reality. The woodcut as an artistic language and due to its reproduction capacity, carries in itself a democratic attitude in the spreading of ideas and images of a given political, economic, social and cultural moment, whether regional, national and international.
