The editorial categories are research topics that have guided researchers during the recovery phase and continue to be the impetus behind the Documents Project’s digital archive and the Critical Documents book series. Developed by the project’s Editorial Board, each of the teams analyzed this framework and adapted it to their local contexts in developing their research objectives and work plans during the Recovery Phase.

This article is a short notice from a newspaper announcing that the Academia Nacional de Bellas Artes was then manufacturing excellent paints for watercolors, pastels, oils, and tempera. The announcement came about due to a rise in prices for imported paints.

In this way, producing their color mixtures with paints manufactured at the Academia gave them a sense of liberation, as they no longer had to import primary materials. Gerardo Murillo, also called Dr. Atl (1875–1964), invented and exported his “Atl colors” to the United States as part of his novel technique for creating his most striking landscapes.
