Description

David Alfaro Siqueiros' lithograph "Jesusito will be a Saint"("Jesusito sera un santo") was published by Atelier Mourlot in 1969. It is pencil signed and numbered (24/250).

Siqueiros is besides Diego Rivera and José Clemente Orozco one of the great muralists of Mexico. He was famous for his artistic achievements and his revolutionary political activity. He was a prolific muralist and his work is represented in Museums and public places throughout the world.
He was the guest of honor at the “Contemporary Arts” exhibition at the St. Regis gallery New York in 1936. There he also ran a political art workshop in preparation for the 1936 General Strike for Peace and May Day parade. The young Jackson Pollock attended the workshop and helped build floats for the parade. Continuing to produce several works throughout the late 1930s – such as Echo of a Scream (1937) and The Sob (1939), both now in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Siqueiros also led a number of experimental art workshops for American students. He also spent the better part of 1938 with the Republican Army in Spain fighting Francisco Franco’s fascist uprising before returning to Mexico City. After his return, in a stairwell of the Sindicato Mexicano de Electricistas, Siqueiros collaborated with Spanish refugee Josep Renau and the International Team of Plastic Artists to develop one of his most famous works, Portrait of the Bourgeoisie, warning against the dual foes of capitalism and fascism. Framed in a half inch gold leaf moulding with 4.5 inch double mat (outside dimension 32 x 27 inches)
