An example of the 1968 print from The Mexican Suite, titled variously as "Indios Bailadores", and "Village Dancers", numbered in lower left margin 110/300 and pencil signed at lower right by the famous Mexican 20th century muralist artist DAVID ALFARO SIQUEIROS (1896-1974). This lithograph (the sheet, 25 1/2" by 19") was printed by Mourlot in Paris. The work was beautifully framed (28" by 21 1/2" overall) by Jerry Solomon of Los Angeles, known for professional quality framing of high end art works. A label from Nemiroff Deutsch Fine Art of Santa Monica is affixed to the backing. Siqueiros is considered one of the three giants of Mexican twentieth century art, alongside Diego Rivera and Jose Clemente Orozco. He was a social realist artist, always concerned with the lot of the Mexican common people and their struggles. Throughout mid and later life, his politics became highly intertwined with his art, and he spent time in prisons, drawing much attention for his strong political views. In 1919 Siqueiros traveled to Europe for the first time, meeting Rivera in Paris and traveling with him to Italy to view Renaissance frescoes. He participated in the Venice Biennale in the early 1950's with Rivera, Orozco and Rufino Tamayo. In the 1960's the artist became an active lithographer, and it is during that period that a number of editions were published, making the work of this great master more accessible and affordable. This example is in excellent condition, though a few light scratches on the Plexi cast shadows which suggest condition problems (the actual print is in excellent condition). The Plexi can be replaced but you would not have to do so,and the high quality Solomon framing can be retained. Colors are bright and unfaded. A fine example of the work of this master artist.
