Description
Farm Workers depicts the plight of all farmworkers, bending all day under a blazing sun as they harvest crops for the voracious American marketplace. Organized farmworkers are visible at the edge of the field picketing for a united farmworkers union with fair pay and decent working conditions while scabs, brought in by the large growers, pick the fields. Seymour Kaplan (1919-2011) , to whom this work is dedicated, was a printmaker who studied at Mexico City College in 1949 and later worked at El Taller de Grafica Popular in Mexico City.
