Additional Information:

Following the Mexican Revolution (1910-20), Mexico became a cultural destination for travelers from around the world. Numerous artists visited the country, home to an internationallyrenowned mural movement and a flourishing printmaking community, to witness the art being produced there and were inspired to capture their own impressions of the country. This exhibition examines prints from the 1930s and 1940s by Mexican and foreign artists that pictured the people, traditions, and history of Mexico for primarily American audiences. It features Mexican People, a portfolio depicting regional trades produced by the influential Mexico City printmaking collective Taller de Gráfica Popular, alongside prints by Jean Charlot, the French artist and historian of Mexican art, and the North American artists Howard Norton Cook, Olin Dows, Henrietta Shore, and Richard Day, most of which will be on view at the museum for the first time.

Please Note: The Zimmerli is closed to the public during the month of August.
