Prints and Drawings

Works on paper are a favorite medium for many 20th-century artists. Prints and drawings comprise the largest component of the National Museum of Mexican Art’s permanent collection, with over 3,200 works on paper, including numbered prints, original drawings and artist sketches.

Highlights of this collection include the world's largest collection of Leopoldo Mendez pieces with nearly 300 in the collection.  The Museum also has nearly 500 works by Carlos Cortez, several hundred prints by artists of the TGP (Taller de Gráfica Popular), and a large collection of prints by Self-Help Graphics.
