Motherwell (1915-1991) and Paz (1914-1998) were close friends and often dedicated works to each other. This collaboration arose from a visit by Motherwell to Mexico in 1967, having already sojourned there in 1941. The portfolio was first published in 1981-82. The current edition comprises text in Spanish and English printed in two colors. Belknap 354-380.
