Great discussion of the background of each and explanations of their works.
Julio's lecture about Mexican Muralism was clearly organized around the three major muralists - Jose Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siqueiros , the politics and history of Mexico that informed their art, and the evolution of Mexican identity as seen in the murals. The murals that Julio used to exemplify these organizing themes were superbly chosen and explained in a way that wove these themes together coherently. The lecture provided an excellent introduction to an extremely interesting and complex topic. Thank you, Julio!
I truly enjoyed this conversation as it brought back such wonderful memories of studying the big 3 mural painters when I was in Mexico for the summer in 1954.
Julio Pastor's presentation was thorough and well done, providing the artists' history and their place within it. The visuals were wonderful and Julio directed one's eye to significant characters and symbols of Mexico's history. I enjoyed it very much.
Excellent information and comparison of style. Well informed of period and techniques,
