Zacatecas: 5.5.4 Arte Contemporaneo, 2014. First Edition. Artist's book commemorating the 100th anniversary of the bloody Battle of Zacatecas, a decisive moment in the Mexican Revolution in which Villista forces outnumbered, killed or seriously wounded nearly all the federal forces defending the city. The battle has since been termed the Taking of Zacatecas ("La Toma de Zacatecas"), and its legendary violence has been mythologized in Mexican visual and musical culture ever since. The album includes work by a number of major contemporary Mexican printmakers, including Elias Urias, Salvador Castro, Andres Ordaz, Martha Franco, Josue Abisai Martinez, Isaac Ruiz Sánchez and many others; the influence of such great Mexican popular illustrators as Jose Guadalupe Posada and the artists of the Taller de Grafica Popular is evident in many of the works. None yet in OCLC as of April, 2015. Edition limited to 100. Small quarto (ca 29cm x 19cm / 11" x 7-1/2"). Album of 18 original signed artworks, mostly woodcuts but also including etchings and mixed-media pieces, each signed and titled in pencil below image.
