Though not well known during her lifetime, Izquierdo had a great impact on Mexican art, especially on contemporary Mexican women artists. This exhibition was the first international retrospective of this artist, and it effectively served to reintroduce the artistic accomplishments of Maria Izquierdo to the U.S. The display consisted of over seventy works from public and private collections in Mexico City, Monterrey, and Cuernavaca. Traveling exhibition venues: Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico City.
