Acordada (Caballos y Zapatistas)
How do color and shape help tell this story?
José Clemente Orozco
José Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siqueiros are known in Mexico as “Los Tres Grandes,” the three founders and masters of the modern Mexican Muralist movement. Fusing a Social Realist style with subject matter derived both from Mexican history and contemporary politics, these artists promoted an indigenous and nationalist art that advocated for social change and helped promote Mexican cultural identity.
