Title:[Francisco Cornejo pictorial works chiefly pertaining to El Rancho del Artista]
Creator/Contributor:Cornejo, Francisco, creator, artist.
Printed material and original artworks by Francisco Cornejo. PIC box 1 contains samples of illustrated print material -- originally
compiled in 2 volumes but disbound prior to library's acquisition -- mostly designed by Cornejo for El Rancho del Artista,
including programs, brochures, paper souvenirs, event announcements, exhibition guides and catalogs, invitations and songs.
Among these materials are finished pieces as well as proofs and fragments. AX and C folders contain original drawings, paintings
and prints by Cornejo, much of it executed in the 1920s while Cornejo lived in the U.S.A., before he returned to Mexico and
established El Rancho del Artista. Much of the collection reflects Cornejo's interest in combining indigenous Mayan and Pre-Columbian
art and other distinctly Mexican subjects and styles with the contemporary artistic and graphic design trends of his time,
most notably that of art deco.
