Mexican Painters - MacKinley Helm
Mexican Painters - MacKinley Helm. THE HARBINGER OF THE MODERN Mexican art movement was not the sybarite himself, Diego Maria de la Concepción Rivera who later possessed it, but a half-legendary little man who is said in the popular tradition to inhabit a cave in the side of Popocatépetl.

Mexican Painters: Rivera, Orozco, Siquerios, and Other Artists of the Social Realist School. Original publication date. This book is highly specialized, for it complements the more general histories of Mexican art, of which there are several, by giving a meticulous analysis of the younger school, and what they are contributing. The author traces the course of Mexican art, indicating the contribution of the ancients, of the popular arts, of the period when foreign monks and friars controlled the cultural life.
From the monumental public frescoes of Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, and David Álfaro Siqueiros, to the canvasses and drawings of younger artists like Galván, Cantú, Meza, Tamayo, and Orozco Romero, Mexican painting since the First World War has developed into a strong, influential artistic tradition.
