Description

Mexican painter Jose Clemente Orozco (1883-1949) was one of the twentieth century's major artists and Mexico's greatest muralist. In addition to his acclaimed work in painting, Orozco was also a skilled and versatile printmaker, architectural draftsman, caricaturist, portraitist, book illustrator, and stage designer for ballet. This fully illustrated volume documents Jose Clemente Orozco's finest work as a printmaker in lithography and intaglio. It reproduces lithographs, etchings, preliminary studies, and unfinished pieces, accompanied by catalog entries that record the work's title, date, and (where applicable) printing history. Accompanying the images are an introduction and biography by Orozco's son Clemente Orozco, who offers an insider's perspective on the artist's philosophy and techniques. As a whole, these graphic works demonstrate Orozco's impeccable craftsmanship and creative style, characterized by an elegant compositional clarity and economy of elements. They powerfully confirm the truth of this statement by Orozco: "After all, isn't it possible to make the most marvelous picture with only a pencil on any piece of paper?"
