Mexicana

Mexicana refers to the crafts produced by Mexico's indigenous people, melding both original Mexican and Spanish Colonial art. Up until the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920), art was considered to be only for the wealthy, had to be of European origin or influence, tended to be extremely formal, and shunned the very existence of the Mexican people. Combined with the overwhelming influx of American tourists, first by rail and then by automobile, and the Mexican Government's emphasis on the creation of native artworks as a means of income for it's people living in remote areas, the popular arts of Mexico flourished. We handle Mexican tourist pottery, sarapes and rugs, popote straw mosaics, bas-relief wood panels, danced masks, lacquerware and more from the late 1800's to the 1950's.
