Everardo Ramírez studied at one of the Escuelas de Pintura al Aire Libre [Open Air Painting Schools], which were founded in Mexico in the 1920s to break away from academic training in favor of more innovative teaching methods. He was a founding member of the Taller de Gráfica Popular [People’s Graphic Workshop] and was also affiliated with the Liga de Escritores y Artistas Revolucionarios [League of Revolutionary Writers and Artists]. Inspired by his rural upbringing, Ramírez focused the subject matter of his prints on the rural workers who bettered society by making bricks, doing construction, cutting stone, and growing crops.
