Description

José Clemente Orozco reinterpreted the mural projects he completed as commissions for the Mexican government as lithographs to share their imagery more widely. Orozco’s focus on universal emotions—such as grief, seen here—appealed to an especially broad audience. This print features a detail from murals that the artist created for the National Preparatory School in Mexico City.
