Another Blanes canvas “translated” by typography. A written picture where a thematic continuity is outlined, a conceptual relationship between the elements of the image and the content of the chosen books. “Carreta”, an 1878 painting, is narrated through different gaucho literature printed materials that refer to the road, to the tracks, to the “distant homeland”... Three different covers from three successive editions of La Carreta by Enrique Amorím, a writer from the Salto province, each featuring its own design (one of them made by Anhelo Hernández for the Losada edition, another with illustrations by Argentine Carybé) allude to the route or movement of the old vehicle.
