Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Tlatilco was a small village located on the outskirts of modern Mexico City. During the 1930s and 1940s, numerous collectors-the artist and author Miguel Covarrubias and his friend the famous muralist Diego Rivera among them-spoke of traveling there on weekends "with a pocketful of cash and returning with an archaeological puzzle or an artistic masterpiece."
