My father saw this painting in a gallery in Mexico several years ago,
and has been looking for more information about it since.
Here is what he writes:

The image that I remembered is definitely from one of the Mexican
masters -Orozco, Siqueiros, Rivera???  I think it was a lithograph,
representing the teacher with its hand up, and drawn in black over
white.  The teacher was male.
The gallery was in either Puebla or Oaxaca.
I believe the image was inspired by the revolutionary efforts to bring
education to the rural masses in Mexico at the time of the Revolution.
 In fact, as I write this I wonder if the title was "El Maestro Rural"

I'm looking for an id of this piece of art.  Helpful information would
be who the artist was, the complete title, if it's different from what
I think it is, and maybe a definite reference to the piece, either on
a website or in a book.

It is definitely not the print by the same name by Lorenzo Homar, nor
the medieval lute player by Luis Milan.
There is no answer at this time.
