Federico Castellón is best known for his early graphic work — his prints and drawings of the 1930s are some of the earliest examples of Surrealism in America. A self-taught artist, Castellón taught at Pratt Institute, Queens College, and Teachers College, Columbia University. This exhibition features works donated to Teachers College by established American printmakers in honor of Federico Castellón, as well as other works from the historical collection.
