Outstanding Mexican Painters: José María Velasco

In Mexico we have had a great amount of talent for many years, each one of them deserves to be remembered for their incredible work and the mark they left in our culture and today we will talk about one of them.

José María Velasco is the most celebrated landscape painter in the history of Mexican art. His career began at a time when painting revolved around religious and historical compositions, starring human figures, so his dedication and talent to faithfully document nature, made him a revolutionary artist for the time. His precise strokes and sensitive color palette have transformed his paintings into historical and geographical resources to study the effects of the population explosion in central Mexico over the last 150 years.
