When the dust had settled following the Mexican Revolution of 1910, it was the artists and intellectuals who were called upon to articulate a new vision for the country's future, and thus began the Mexican renaissance that exuberantly brought together modernism with the cultural identity of a new nationalism. Presented in this catalogue are works by Los Tres Grandes: Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros, along with important works by artists less well known outside Mexico, such as Saturnino Herrán, Abraham Ángel, Fermin Revueltas, Gabriel Fernández Ledesma, Antonio Ruiz, and many others. Mexican women artists represented include Frida Kahlo, Maria Izquierdo and Olga Costa. Complementing the oil painters is a small group of vintage photographs by Edward Weston, Tino Modotti, and Manuel Bravo, who exemplify the avant-garde photography that appeared during the Mexican renaissance.
