Sarah Jiménez, Mexican artist, Died at 90


Sarah Jimenez Vernis was born on February 3, 1927, in Piedras Negras, Coahuila and died on March 13, 2017.

She was a Mexican artist.

Sarah is known for her political graphic work in the mid 20th century, especially with the Taller de Gráfica Popular, earning her membership in the Salón de la Plástica Mexicana.

During her time with the Taller, Sarah’s career shifted to teaching, and her work became mostly forgotten.

But, there have been efforts to revive interest in it.

Sarah spent her first years growing up in Mexico, near the United States border until her family moved to Córdoba, Veracruz, where she received her primary and middle school education at the Escuela de Artes y Oficios.

Sarah Jiménez passed away at 90 years old.
