About this artist
Francisco Díaz de León (1897- 1975)
Francisco Díaz de León (1897-1975) looms large over the history of modern Mexican art: an outstanding engraver, illustrator, book designer, photographer, professor, founder of the Open-Air Painting School in Tlalpan and director of the School of Book Arts. The energy he brought to all of these activities has influenced several generations of Mexican artists. As a printmaker, Díaz de León’s style married a bold modernist graphic pop with warmth and intimacy of lineation, and he developed this style across a vast body of work, comprising some 1,500 print works.
The work presented here is an original drawing, titled, dated, and signed by the influential Latin American artist.
Latin American artist, Francisco Diaz de Leon notable for pioneering much of modern Mexican graphic arts.
