Here's one you don't see everyday. This is an original pencil signed lithograph by the noted Mexican artist Jesus Escobedo. Signed and dated 1939 by the artist in the lower right margin. Measures 10 by 8 1/2 inches (plate size) approximately. Offered unframed as found. A nice impression overall, however that are a few foxing marks present (see images). This print has also been mounted to a piece of cardboard. Despite the condition, this rare lithograph is an easily displayable piece.
Escobedo is considered to be a pioneer Mexican lithographer as was part of the historic and important Taller de Gráfica Popular (TGP), founded in 1937 in Mexico City by Luis Arenal, Leopoldo Mendez and Pablo O’Higgins. The TGP became the most well known graphic arts workshop in Mexico, not only for its artistic output, but also for its social activism.
