Cerámica de Tlaquepaque - Tlaquepaque Pottery - Artes de México


Ceramics from Tlaquepaque. From 1920 to the 1950s, the glazed earthenware of Tlaquepaque underwent a revival thanks in part to the presence of artists like Roberto Montenegro, Doctor Atl and Adolfo Best Maugard. The ceramicists of Tlaquepaque invented a decorative style that reaffirmed their past while becoming a precursor to the movement to re-evaluate folk art.
