Books Painted on Walls: The Murals of Mexico City
Dina Comisarenco Mirkin, Pablo Neruda, José Luis Trueba Lara, Xavier Villaurrutia
By far Mexico’s most emblematic artistic movement, Muralism emerged at a critical moment in the development of Mexican nationalism, when the Revolution had just come to a close and the country was looking for a new identity. It was José Vasconcelos—an exceptional mind—who laid the foundations for it, followed by the great painters, Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, José Clemente Orozco, who lent shape to our concept of the nation. Their expository murals are like books painted on walls, giving life and color to the “motherland.” This is an invitation to revisit these murals and to revel in their beauty.
