Francisco Dosamantes offered the portfolio to which this print belongs as a gift to the Cleveland Museum of Art shortly after it was published in acknowledgement of the museum's growing collection of Mexican art.
These prints belong to a series in which Francisco Dosamantes juxtaposed Mexico’s rural, indigenous culture with its rapidly industrializing cities. Both artworks depict stark white silhouettes of working-class men against abandoned farmland, suggesting that such figures were being gradually phased out of modern society. Dosamantes intended the series as a political statement on the loss of Mexico’s native culture, as collectivity gave way to urban alienation.
