Mexico Modern


Member Price
Mexico Modern explores the 1920s and ’30s, a time of incredible creativity and influence for modern Mexican art. A dynamic cultural exchange between Mexico and the United States—which included artists such as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, and Rufino Tamayo; photographers such as Edward Weston, Tina Modotti, and Manuel Alvarez Bravo; and designers such as Miguel Covarrubias and William Spratling—helped shape a new Mexican cultural identity in the wake of the tumultuous revolution.

This book draws on the collection of the Harry Ransom Center in Austin, Texas, as well as other museums, to showcase the brilliant art made by Mexican artists in the period while also setting it in context, showing how it was championed by journalists, publishers, and promoters in both Mexico and the United States.
Mexico Modern showcases a truly remarkable place and time in the history of art.

Edited by Donald Albrecht and  Thomas Mellins.
