Mis Hermanos

  • Jesse Treviño, Mis Hermanos, 1976, acrylic on canvas, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Lionel Sosa, Ernest Bromley, Adolfo Aguilar of Sosa, Bromley, Aguilar and Associates, 1994.74

Exhibition Label
Mis Hermanos was inspired by a snapshot of a weekend family get-together where siblings gather for a photo, their eyes perhaps focused on multiple cameras. Treviño was attracted to such commonplace yet personally meaningful subjects after returning as a wounded Vietnam veteran to his hometown of San Antonio, Texas. Treviño’s photorealist paintings monumentalize everyday people and places not traditionally viewed as icons of the United States.
