Description of Pictures: Francisco Toledo: Toledo Múltiple
April 3 - May 27, 2018
As Mexico's most prolific and influential graphic artist, Francisco Toledo has been exploring the fantastical and expanding the expressive range of his printmaking over more than 50 years. This exhibition encompasses a wide range of Toledo's work, revealing the progression and creative process evidenced in his printmaking. The exhibition also includes 21 works by both Mexican and foreign printmakers as part of Toledo's collection for the Instituto de Artes Graficas de Oaxaca (IAGO). These works have been influential in developing Toledo's creative vision and serve to contextualize the medium in a global art history. Curated by Fernando Gálvez de Aguinaga.
Francisco Toledo: Toledo Múltiple was organized by the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center and is toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC

Copyrights: All pictures were taken by amateur photographer Bruce Guthrie (me!) who retains copyright on them. Free for non-commercial use with attribution. See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

KATTOL_180413_001.JPG: Toledo Multiple presents the work of Mexico's most prolific and influential graphic artist, Francisco Toledo. This exhibition encompasses over 50 years of Toledo's printmaking, revealing the progression of his creative process and baring the inevitable imprint of the culture that produced it: the myth and magic, ritual and fable of Oaxaca and the Zapotec people. Yet it is universal, we can all feel its truth and relevance for our lives.

KATTOL_180413_181.JPG: Toledo Múltiple includes 21 works by both Mexican and international printmakers. Toledo became a master printmaker, collaborating at elite workshops in the United States and Europe, such as the Polígrafa in Barcelona and Bramsen & Clot in Paris.

Presented here are a group of prints representative of the history of the graphic arts in Mexico and the world by the following artists: Pierre Alechinsky, Max Beckmann, Arturo Garcia Bustos, Miguel Covarrubias, José Luis Cuevas, Honoré Daumier, Albrecht Dürer, James Ensor, Max Ernst, Lucian Freud, Francisco de Goya y Lucien- tes, Max Klinger, Wifredo Lam, Manuel Manilla, Leopoldo Méndez, José Chávez Morado, José Guadalupe Posada, Julio Ruelas, Rufino Tamayo, Antonio Tapies, and Kitagawa Utamaro.
