La Tentacion

La Tentacion

RAUL ANQUIANO/1971

Forge a genuine link to a master artist's creative essence with this unique contour drawing. José Raúl Anguiano Valadez, a true master of his craft and a pivotal figure in contemporary art, particularly within the "second generation" of Mexican muralists, continued the legacy of pioneers while infusing his distinct voice into the movement. Through every piece, including minimalist drawings like this, Anguiano crafted a profound connection, intricately binding the viewer to the indigenous subjects that were a recurring motif in his art.
