Summary note:
Retrospective that examines the artistic production of painter Adolfo Best Maugard (b. Mexico 1891-d. Athens, Greece 1964) in all its creative stages, from his early modern creations, his incursion in cinema and the theatre, his creation of scenery in historical events, to the influence of his method of drawing in Mexican artists. The edition features works of the artist, as well as some of his Mexican contemporaries of the first half of the 20th century such as Dr. Atl, Armando García Núñez, Diego Rivera, Roberto Montenegro, Olga Costao, and Miguel Covarrubias. The texts also address his work in the film industry during the first years of the 1930's, where, among other things, he was counselor and censor of the feature film "Que viva Mexico!" directed by Sergei Eisenstein.
