Estampas de la raza is one of the first books about the vibrant and exciting prints created by American artists of Mexican and Latino heritage in the decades following the Chicano movement of the 1970s. Drawn entirely from a major gift to the McNay Art Museum by Drs. Harriett and Ricardo Romo, among the most important collectors of this material in the United States, Estampas de la raza is a significant document of the development of printmaking in the Latino community and a stunning survey of many of the best prints to emerge from such influential print shops as Self Help Graphics, Modern Multiples, and Coronado Studios.
The book includes more than 60 full-color prints by nearly 50 artists with full biographies of each artist and a discussion of the artists' approaches to representing the Mexican American, Latino, and Chicano experience.
