During his stay in the United States in the late 1920s, José Clemente Orozco used the medium of lithography to reproduce images from his frescoes in Mexico City. The prints served to familiarize the American audience with his work while also providing a stream of income. This somber image is based on a detail from one of Orozco’s frescos at the Colegio de San Ildelfonso in Mexico City. The gentle undulations of the draped shawl coupled with the graceful fluidity of her arms, work to create a pensive serenity for the subject, a pregnant wife of one of the soldiers of the Mexican Revolution.
