Rate this:
The fresco that Jose Clemente Orozco painted in 1930 at Pomona College in Claremont, California, was both the artist's first work in the United States and the first Mexican mural in this country. As such, the Prometheus is a landmark in the history of the Mexican mural movement and of the art of the 20th century. The four essays in this volume, written over a period of 43 years, bear testimony to the undimmed power of the Prometheus to intrigue, provoke, and inspire. Celebrating the college's acquisition of 17 preparatory drawings for the mural from the artist's family, the book is illustrated with Orozco's work and that of his contemporaries.
