Often thought of as the other Mexican muralist, beside his more flamboyant compatriot Diego Rivera, Orozco was a leader of the Mexican Renaissance. His bold, dynamic frescoes had a profound impact on American painters and inspired FDR to put artists to work during the Great Depression. His most famous U.S. murals - The Table of Universal Brotherhood, The Epic of American Civilization and Prometheus - still convey their power in New York, New Hampshire and California. An iconoclastic who survived the loss of his left hand and destruction of more than half his early work by border agents, Orozco's travels back and forth across the U.S.-Mexico border evoke the larger Mexican migrant-immigrant experience and have provocative parallels to present times.
