About this artwork

O’Higgins, the workshop’s premier lithographer, focused in many works on the theme of urban construction workers, portraying them as active and attentive to their tasks, if not heroic, in order to stress their role in the ongoing effort to build a new society in the postrevolutionary period.

Español:
O’Higgins, el principal litógrafo del Taller, abordó en muchas de sus obras el tema de los albañiles. Los representó activos y concentrados en sus tareas, cuando no heroicos, para subrayar el papel que desempeñaban en el continuo esfuerzo en pro de la construcción de una nueva sociedad durante el periodo posrevolucionario.
