Art is not an imitation nor an ethnological curiosity staged for tourists. Only when an artist realizes perfectly which is his right and proper function in the social body, and sees with his own eyes, feels with his own heart and thinks with his own mind, will appear a new art on the American continent, the creation of a new race.
–Jose Clemente Orozco, Mexican social realist painter. Born November 23, 1883. Died September 7, 1949
