Alfarera Sentada

RAUL ANGUIANO/1982

This drawing's flawless display of high key contrast and predominantly light tones is a treat to the eye. José Raúl Anguiano Valadez was a luminary in contemporary art and a key figure in the "second generation" of Mexican muralists. He blessed the movement with his unique voice and had the profound skill of connecting viewers with the indigenous subjects of his creations. Each work, whether mural or simple drawings like this one, serves as a testament to Anguiano's ability to give voice to an entire culture.
