A Siqueiros al partir

Pablo Neruda le escribe al preso Nº 46.788

Por César Chamma y Marcelo Gardinetti

El aberrante encierro carcelario al que fue sometido el genial artista Mexicano David Alfaro Siqueiros en 1960,  generó reacciones de repudio e indignación en varios países del mundo. En un artículo anterior titulado “La Disolución Social de Siqueiros” comentamos las “razones” por las que fue encarcelado en la Cárcel de Lecumberri.

La inmensa repercusión que tuvo en la Republica Argentina este inconcebible hecho quedó certificado en innumerables textos y publicaciones de esos años. La imagen que acompañamos fue publicada en noviembre de 1961 por la revista “Hoy en el Arte”, que le dedica la contratapa de su primer número, una imagen que es tan certera como desoladora.

La fotografía de la contratapa esta acompañada por el texto: “Palacio Negro de Lecumberri, Preso nº 46.788, desde el  9 de agosto de 1960” y por el poema “A Siqueiros al Partir”, de su amigo el poeta Chileno Pablo Neruda, para quien Siqueiros ilustrara junto a Diego Rivera “Canto General”, su gran crónica Latinoamericana publicada en Mexico en 1950.

A Siqueiros al partir

Aquí te dejo, con la luz de enero

El corazón de Cuba liberada,

Y, Siqueiros, no olvides que te espero

En mi patria volcánica y nevada

He visto tu pintura encarcelada

Que es como encarcelar la llamarada.

Y me duele al partir EL DESAFUERO!

Tu pintura es la patria bienamada


Pablo Neruda,

 Mexico D.F. 9 de enero de 1961
