Dorothy Stewart was an artist who delighted in music, theater, animals and, especially, the people and places of Mexico. Her first book documented architectural features from the neighborhoods of Mexico City. It was published there in 1933.
Later, Stewart’s Canyon Road art gallery, Galleria Mexico, became the home of Pictograph Press, her publishing venture. With equipment acquired in 1948 from a defunct Española, New Mexico newspaper and a skill for capturing imagery in linoleum block prints, Stewart turned out a colorful array of expressive books focusing on theater, Indian dances, and rock art. The last imprint of the Pictograph Press appeared in 1953.
