Useful survey of modern Mexican artists that was contemporary to the period of publication. It is of interest that this book appeared at the beginning of the "Ruptura". There appears in this work a chapter on the new wave of artists and how each generation has its own sensiblity and spirit of contradiction. Part of the this group are: Gunther Gerzso, Juan Soriano, Pedro Coronel, Enrique Echeverría, Manuel Felguérez, Alberto Gironella, Francisco Toledo. Very impressive text.
