The Pillars of Rodolfo Morales

Rodolfo Morales was a Mexican painter known for his bright paintings and collages featuring village settings, as well as his restoration of historic buildings in Ocotlán, Oaxaca. He was born into a humble working class Zapotec family on May 8, 1925. Ten years before his death in 2001, he and fellow painter Francisco Toledo were revered as Mexico’s greatest living artists. I had the opportunity to see a series of colorful pillars he painted depicting Mexican women, many of whom are shown as brides.
