2 Ades, Dawn; McClean, Alison Revolution on Paper: Mexican Prints 1910-1960 (Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Series in Latin American and Latino Art and Culture)
University of Texas Press 2009-11-15 0292722486 / 9780292722484 First Edition Paperback Collectible: Like New Paperback 
Unread. The left-wing government viewed art as an important vehicle for education and the promotion of revolutionary values. It established a program to cover the walls of public buildings with murals and set up numerous workshops to produce prints for wide distribution. By the 1930s, Mexico was attracting socially committed artists from all over the American continent and beyond, ready to do battle for a new aesthetic as well as a new political order. Diego Rivera, a key figure in the art of revolution, became one of the most celebrated artists in the world.Starting with works by Jose Guadalupe Posada, who was adopted by the revolutionaries as the archetypal printmaker for the people, Revolution on Paper features prints by thirty-five artists, including the Three Greats of Mexican art of the period--Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros. The selection includes not only single-sheet artists prints, but also posters addressing social and political issues, and illustrated books on many different subjects. Images of the revolutionary hero Emiliano Zapata, scenes of poverty, hunger, and oppression, and posters protesting against fascism and the war in Europe contrast with representations of Mexican history and idealized rural life that express what was regarded as typically Mexican. Introductory essays by Dawn Ades and Alison McClean set Mexican printmaking in its artistic and political context. Book has chronologky from 1852 to 1960. Also list of Mexican Presidents from 1876 to 1964. Most prints are in color.
