Orozco at San Ildefonso



José Clemente Orozco, one of the more important Mexican muralists that helped establish the Mexican Mural Renaissance.  The Old San Ildefonso College, built by the Jesuits at the end of the 16th century.   Three floors full of murals by Orozco, touching on the Mexican Revolution, on poverty, on the conquest of Mexico.  Need I say more?
