"Mosquitos Will Bite when the Fish Don't" by Vic Herman, Lithograph, 1979
American artist Vic Herman considers himself bi-national, having grown up in a Mexican community in Los Angeles and embracing both American and Mexican culture. As such, Herman strives to accurately depict the daily lives of Mexican citizens, as seen here in this lithograph titled "Mosquitoes Will Bite when the Fish Don't" from 1979. In this print, Herman depicts a little boy dressed in everyday clothes inspecting his arm, trying to find the source of his itch. The late-day sun hitting both him and his guardian cast long shadows on the ground, while bringing out the bright white of the nearby building. With Norman Rockwell-like realism, Herman captures the minute and charming details of the everyday through intensive in-situ sketches and study. In honor of works like this, Herman was awarded a American Medallion of Honor in 1969 for furthering good relations between Mexico and America, and has even been nominated for the Order of the Aztec Eagle, the highest cultural honor possible for non-Mexican citizens.
