Carlos Mérida. Mexican Costume. Chicago: The Pocahontas Press, 1941.
First edition, limited to 1,000 copies. Elephant folio. Eight page text supplement. Twenty-five loose color serigraph plates by Carlos Mérida.
Plates slightly toned with offsetting on the verso of each plate. Text supplement and loose illustrations housed in a portfolio of quarter orange cloth over paper covered boards. Former owner's blind stamp on the title page of the supplement. Moderate wear to the portfolio. Very good.
Mérida worked with Diego Rivera to paint the murals of the Anfiteatro Bolivar in Mexico City, and together with Rivera, Orozco, and Siqueiros founded the Union of Workers, Technicians, Painters and Sculptors. After seeing the works of Paul Klee and Joh Miro in Paris, he abandoned his figurative style to became one of Mexico's first cubist artists.
From the Juana de Laban Dance Collection.
