Major exhibition in different venues of the United States that presents Mexico's graphic-arts movement in the first half of the 20th century with the revival of printmaking by artists such as José Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Rufino Tamayo who produced a collection of prints (many previously unpublished) that reflected the social and political changes bought on by the revolution promoting a new more socialist concept of the national identity. The accompanying book is the first to examine in-depth the vital contributions Mexican printmakers made to modern art, and their influence on coming generations of national and foreign artists. Includes essays by distinguished scholars that analyze the work of Emilio Amero and Jesús Escobedo, who traveled abroad, and of Elizabeth Catlett and Jean Charlot who came to Mexico, the important roles of the Taller de Gráfica Popular and the Weyhe Gallery in New York, two art establishments that produced, published and distributed prints by many of these artists during the 1920's and 1930's.
