From an annual review of project achievements of the Museo Nacional de Arte ? MUNAL in México in 2010, this exhibition aims to circulate the Mexican art form of creative drawing within the medium in context of post-revolutionary art. Another objective met by this exhibition is to establish contact with the American public as part of the MUNAL?s mission to reaffirm the Mexican national identity through the arts. The exhibition spans the twentieth century from c. 1900 to 1945 in charcoal and watercolor. The earliest works are from c. 1900, represented by a stunning watercolor portrait of a woman by Alfredo Ramos Martínez, who is considered by many to be the father of Mexican Modernism and a 1909 charcoal drawing of a Warrior by Saturnino Herrán, the first Mexican artist to envision the concept of a totally Mexican art and who paved the foundation for the development of the Mexican muralist movement twenty years before Los Tres Grandes ? Siqueiros, Orozco and Rivera. Other works by Roberto Montenegro and Antonio Fabres predate the rise of Modernism in Mexico, while others featured in the exhibition include the more celebrated and recognized, Modernists, Dr. Atl (Gerardo Murillo), José Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and Julio Castellanos. The exhibition made its debut in 2010 in Paris and is being exhibited for the first time in United States at the El Paso Museum of Art.
