Mexico's art history has been evolving for more than 2000 years and modern Mexican art embodies elements and characteristics of centuries of indigenous art. Imbued with traces of ancient mysticism and combining both pagan and Christian beliefs, Mexican art is both visual and narrative in nature - as colourful and complex as the Mexican people themselves. This work showcases 48 pieces of Mexican art - ancient ceramic statues and mosaic masks from the Mayans and Aztecs, tomb facades and interior temple reliefs, feather pictures, monstrances, classically inspired painting by artists of the viceregal period including Baltasar de Echeve Orio and Juan Rodriguez Juarez, 19th century masterpieces by Obregon and Velasco, and 20th century favourites including works by Mexican muralist Rivera, Orozco, Kahlo and others - each accompanied by an essay revealing the complicated connections between Mexican politics, society and art.
