The McNay has one of the finest collections of Mexican modernism to be found anywhere. The collection goes back to the late 1920s when founder Marion Koogler McNay purchased Diego Rivera’s Delfina Flores. The Museum’s commitment to Mexican art continued under the leadership of first director John Palmer Leeper who had a great love of and appreciation for Mexican art, culture, and people. Leeper acquired a highly important group of prints produced at the collaborative print workshop, El Taller de Gráfica Popular. The collection, however, remained weak in the prints of the three greats of Mexican modernism: Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Jose Clemente Orozco. In 2000, the McNay acquired the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s duplicates of prints by these masters creating one of the richest collections of Mexican prints from the 1920s to the 1950s. This exhibition is a rare opportunity to see nearly all of the McNay’s prints by “los tres grandes.”
