Fourteen essays by authors from both the United States and Mexico offer a thorough reassessment of Mexican modernism from multiple perspectives. Some of the texts delve into thematic topics developments in mural painting, the role of the government in the arts, intersections between modern art and cinema, and the impact of Mexican art in the United States while others explore specific modernist genres such as printmaking, photography, and architecture. This beautifully illustrated book offers a comprehensive look at the period that brought Mexico onto the world stage during a period of political upheaval and dramatic social change."
