Transcript of Jose Clemente Orozco

Jose Clemente Orozco Es un Pintor
Nacio en November 23, 1883 in Jalisco, Mexico.
Murio en September 7, 1949 in Mexico City, Mexico 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. 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. Estillo de arte: His styles of art were Symbolism and Realism Caracteristicas de su arte: 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. Orozco combined painting with drawing and lithography. He was dedicated to depicting the truth and had a great sense of realism. This is illustrated by his violent displays of conflict and chaos and misery. Profesion: Arguably Orozco's greatest achievement. This image is a metaphor for the theme of social struggle. Orozco is successful in depicting an accurate account of man's personal suffering without overpowering it with emotion. Man of Fire The Trench The stillness of the soldiers portrays the violent movements of war frozen in time. Catharsis Shows the never ending cycle of Humanity's self destruction in a frightening way. It explores the theme of man being obsessed the modern advances in technology and machinery. In front of a firey background, humans are being "sucked into mechanical quicksand". 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. By Thomas Sydeski and Brendon Costello
