Contrapunto, a bimonthly magazine, was devoted to literature, criticism, and art. The magazine’s objective was to explore the hidden nuances to be found among the more extreme positions, deliberately adopting a heterogeneous approach when it came to selecting subject matter and writers. The Editorial Board consisted of Héctor René Lafleur (Secretary), León Benarós, Arturo Cerretani, Sigfrido Radaeli, José Luis Lanuza (all of whom were writers), the illustrator Fernando Guibert, the poet Alejandro Denis-Krause, and the painter Raúl Lozza (editors). Daniel Devoto, César Fernández Moreno, and Roger Plá were also in the editorial department, and Tristán Fernández was in management. Contrapunto appeared six times in Buenos Aires between December 1944 and October 1945. Roger Plá was a writer and an intellectual, born in 1912 in the city of Rosario, in the province of Santa Fe, Argentina. He was an art critic and the author of a number of novels, including Paño verde, El Duelo y Los Robinsones. Antonio Berni, Tomás Maldonado, Jorge Larco, Juan del Prete, Norah Borges, Horacio Butler, Emilio Pettoruti, Manuel Espinosa, Orlando Pierri, Francisco De Santo, Joaquín Torres García, Raúl Soldi, and Enrique Policastro replied to the magazine’s survey, which enquired about the future of painting. This particular article has been chosen because it defines the parameters of the survey conducted by Contrapunto in the magazine’s 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th issues. The article establishes the connection with Où va la peinture? [What is the Future of Painting?], the survey that was published in Paris in 1935 in the magazine Commune, revue de l’Association des Écrivains et des Artistes Révolutionnaires [Commune, the magazine of the Association of Revolutionary Writers and Artists].
