A wide-ranging investigation of the image of Mexico reflected in American art and popular culture during the period between the Mexican Revolution and the end of World War II, this catalogue highlights some 100 diverse paintings, photographs, drawings and prints by more than 50 American artists who visited the country (including Avery, Hartley, Albers, Motherwell, Strand and Weston) along with representative works by such Mexican painters as Orozco, Rivera and Siqueiros and a selection of magazine illustrations, travel posters, souvenirs and other commercial and folk art objects mirroring American perceptions of Mexico during the first half of the 20th century. Reproductions of the featured works accompany an examination of the political, social and artistic currents that influenced the development of modern art in post-revolutionary Mexico and a lengthy essay discussing the often idealized depictions of Mexican history and society produced by American artists of the time.
