While doing some research on Mexican muralist José Clemente Orozco for a series I’d like to do do later on, I came across this post by Gabriela on another Mexican artist, Alfredo Ramos Martínez. I enjoyed learning more about this painter and seeing his works which often depicted indigenous women, especially as flower vendors.  The indigenous woman is presented as beautiful, delicate and yet still strong and determined.  The recurring flower motif and use of earthy oranges and yellows, caught my attention.
