MEXICO & MODERN PRINTMAKING CLOTH
1920 to 1950
Edited by John Ittmann
With contributions by Innis Howe Shoemaker, James M. Wechsler, and Lyle W. Williams
Mexico witnessed an exciting revival of printmaking alongside its better-known public mural program in the decades after the 1910–20 revolution. Major artists such as Jose Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Rufino Tamayo produced prints that furthered the social and political reforms of the revolution and helped develop a uniquely Mexican cultural identity. This groundbreaking book is the first to undertake an in-depth examination of these prints, the vital contributions Mexico's printmakers made to international modern art, and their influence on coming generations of artists.
