Jose Clemente Orozco was born on November 23, 1883 in Jalisco, Mexico. Like the other two Mexican muralists, Orozco studied art at the San Carlos Academy for Fine Arts in Mexico City. He was greatly influenced by another famous Mexican artist, Jose Posada. He painted like a camera took pictures, clear and detailed. The major art movement that influenced him was Symbolism. During an experiment in school Orozco lost his right hand and partial sight in one of his eyes. He joined the student strikes initiated my the painting students to over throw the strict Director. Orozco was very active politically throughout the revolution and witnessed its horrors first hand. He became a political cartoonist, publishing most of his work in local newspapers.
Orozco could be considered the most complex of the Mexican muralists. He was dedicated to depicting the truth and had a greater sense of realism that Diego Rivera. This is illustrated by his violent displays of conflict and chaos and misery. He realized the enormous gap between social ideals and social realities. He focused on showing personal suffering in a pessimistic, skeptical, yet sympathetic way. Prometheus was painted at Pomona College in California. This was his first mural in the United States. It illustrates Orozco's belief that all the events of history are in a never ending circular sequence.

died Sept. 7, 1949, Mexico City Mexican mural painter. When he lost his left hand at age 17, he abandoned architectural studies for painting, pursuing Mexican themes. As a caricaturist for a revolutionary paper, he explored Mexico City's slums and painted a series of watercolours, House of Tears , on the lives of prostitutes. The reaction of moralists forced him to flee to the U.S. in 1917, but in 1919 the new government of welcomed him back, and he joined Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros in creating large-scale murals for public buildings, in which he continued his radical social commentary. Again forced to abandon Mexico in 1927, he worked until 1934 in the U.S., where his style evolved and matured in murals from coast to coast. In 1934, his international reputation firmly established, he returned to Mexico and embarked on his most technically impressive and emotionally expressive murals, including Catharsis (1934), in the Palacio de Bellas Artes. He was a leader among those who raised Mexican art to a position of international eminence.

His Biography.
A great ideological struggle is never a day at the beach. Whether its matrix is race, nationality or economic inequality, the fight of the oppressed against the oppressor is always a somber affair. Nobody realized this better than José Clemente Orozco. Born at a time when Mexico was ruled by a seemingly revolution-proof dictator, Orozco was in an ideal position to depict how difficult would be the effort of the Mexican people to obtain social justice. And, with the possible exception of Goya, no artist depicted the human condition of his times with more passion and skill than Orozco. The artist was born in the Jalisco town of Zapotlán el Grande (today Ciudad Guzmán) on November 23, 1883. His family moved first to Guadalajara and then to Mexico City, where he arrived in 1890. As noted in my coverage on José Guadalupe Posada , one of that great satirist's disciples was young Orozco. Orozco was inspired to take up art as a career after seeing some of Posada's engravings. He began classes at the San Carlos Academy but at first wasn't convinced that he could make a full-time career out of art. So he studied agriculture for three years, only to return to the academy in 1906 and remain there until 1910.

10. Jose Clemente Orozco
José clemente orozco’s exquisite preparatory drawings for Prometheus, his powerful mural (measuring 20 x 28’) located in Frary Hall at Pomona College,

January 22 - March 3 at the Pomona College Museum of Art , Pomona
by Kathy Zimmerer

The preparatory drawings for Prometheus
Beautifully composed by Orozco to perfectly fit the architectural space, the mural depicts Prometheus, the mythological titan who stole fire from the gods to give to humanity, and who was then horribly punished by a raging Zeus. His magnificent but anguished figure fills up the apex of the arch, and beams of orange fire radiate out from his powerful hands. Rows of distorted figures reaching for the fire are clustered symmetrically behind him. The incredibly dynamic upward movement induced by the symmetry and action of the figures adds a great sense of psychological tension to the narrative.
The preparatory drawings serve to visually elucidate this masterpiece. Most beautiful is a detailed drawing of the figure of Prometheus that outlines the triangular composition and shows the strong musculature of his body. Humanity is dwarfed beside his magnificent scale, and he seems confined within a space too small for his power. In its skill and beauty of line and modeling, the study measures up to the Renaissance and Mannerist masters that it echoes.
Also highlighting the drawings is a study of a torso for one of the larger human figures, a dynamic image that reveals the inherent movement in the body with strong lines and shadows. Another amazing study entitled

: Jose Clemente Orozco
Nationality: Mexican
Movement: Expressionism
Media: Painting

Mexican artist, Jose Clemente Orozco studied engineering and architecture in Mexico City and then enrolled at the Academia San Carlos to study art. His interest in the art and architecture of the Toltecs and Mayas was evident in his paintings, giving his work a distinctive quality that separated him from the European Expressionists. Because of his revolutionary and political beliefs, his paintings often chronicle the dramatic social changes and events in Mexico during his Orozco’s lifetime. Between 1917 and 1934, he sporadically worked in the United States and muralist and decorative painter for several public buildings.

Jose Clemente Orozco: The Epic of American Civilization
Murals and Preliminary Drawings
One of the greatest treasures of the Dartmouth College collection is the ambitious mural The Epic of American Civilization, painted by the Mexican artist Jos© Clemente Orozco between 1932 and 1934 in the reserve corridor of Baker Library. Offering a complex and compelling narrative that covers the history of the Americas from the migration of the Aztecs into central Mexico to the development of our modern industrialized society, the mural is composed of twenty-four individual panels, or "scenes," and covers approximately 3,200 square feet. One of Orozco's greatest works, The Epic of American Civilization must also be counted among the finest examples of mural painting in this country. Visitors can view the mural whenever the reserve room is
