In the catalogue for the 1981-82 exhibition Milton Avery in Mexico and After, Dore Ashton writes, "If we look back to the paintings of Mexico of the late 1940s, we find the characteristic Avery sensibility and yet, we find an indelible remembrance of a specific place. The way the people move slowly through dry, heated landscape, is peculiar to Mexico, or at least to Avery's vision of Mexico. The colors are certainly heated, but never shrill. Avery was painting in Mexico during the height of popularity of the Mexican muralists; yet, his calm, tender vision prevailed. Nothing swayed him from his original course" (Milton Avery in Mexico and After, New York, 1981, p. 18).
