What President Obama saw in Guadalajara

Jose Clemente Orozco

He is one of the great painters of the Mexican vanguard. It studied in the Academy of San Carlos of Mexico and from his youth he was the interpreter of the revolution, using subjects, both political and social, that developed in his great composition murals.

It developed a heroic style, founded on a realism of character, consciously bound to the old Mexican artistic traditions, of violent dynamism.

It was born in City Guzmn (Zapotln the Great one), Jalisco in 1883; and died in the City of Mexico in 1949. Along with his family moved to Guadalajara and soon to the capital of the Republic, where he arrived in 1890. As a boy, she knew Jose Guadalupe Put, whose engravings influenced his painting.
