Synopsis

This article reproduces a letter sent by painter Emilio Pettoruti to Martín Fierro; in it he makes it clear that the letter has not met with acceptance by the magazine.  It responds to an article published in Martín Fierro regarding a text that appeared in Omnia [Everything] magazine on January 22, 1927.  The latter dealt with the influences and changes the painter produced on the local art milieu.

Annotations

La Campana de Palo [The Wooden Bell] published its first six editions between June and December 1925. Following a time in which the journal was not published, it reappeared in September 1926 with a contiguous enumeration, although using a different format and with the subtitle Periódico Mensual. Bellas Artes y Polémica [Monthly Journal: Fine Arts and Controversy]. In this second phase that lasted until September–October 1927, eleven issues were published. 

 

La Campana de Palo was one of the main publications for the dissemination of the ideas belonging to the anarchist group led by Alfredo Chiabra-Acosta, also known by the pseudonym Atalaya, or At.
