This tee is based on an engraving done by Mexican artist and illustrator Leopoldo Méndez. He created it for the jacket of Melódicos del Mundo Irracional (“Melodic incidents of an irrational world”). The book, published by La Estampa Mexicana in 1944, contains Mayan folk tales compiled by author Juan de la Cabada and illustrated with 40 engravings by Méndez.
LACMA’s permanent collection includes thirty-six works by Leopoldo Méndez (1902–1969) including this work.
