The stark detail featured in this lithograph contrasts with other portions of the mural it comes from, which presented a more optimistic view of the Mexican Revolution.
Alongside David Alfaro Siqueiros and Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco became known as one of los tres grandes—the three great artists who aimed to develop a distinctively Mexican art after the country’s revolution. This lithograph relates to Orozco’s 1926 mural The Family, completed for the National Preparatory School in Mexico City. The detail featured here shows a man lying on barren ground near his relatives, presumably mourning the loss of his home and farmland during the political upheaval.
