“Mexican Masters”

If you’re a fan of famed Mexican artists Diego Rivera and José Orozco, you’ll enjoy seeing their paper works in “Mexican Masters,” currently on exhibition at Redbud Gallery. Gallery Manager Gus Kopriva says, “A highlight of this exhibition is the inclusion of a rare WW II-era pencil study drawing for a mural by the Mexican master muralist Diego Rivera. This piece provides us with an insight on preliminary work required for his murals. Each element of the Indian chief’s headdress is identified by proposed coloring and accompanying notes.” Orozco is represented by two lithos from the late 1920s and 1930s. Two seldom-seen signed silver gelatin and palladium photographs by Manual Alvarez Bravo are included, as are two signed original kite constructions and three signed lithographs from the late 1960s by Oaxacan artist Francisco Toledo.
