    This was a very impressive documentary. Is there any way to get a DVD of the program? What is the length of the documentary? Thanks!

    I had seen one or two of his earlier works (b&w skeletons) but was completely ignorant of him, and his later work. What an eye-opener this documentary was. I enjoyed it very much.

  • Richard G.

    This artist was so prolific, it is hard to understand why he is not far more well known in the US. Was awed by his inclusion of deep social issues in his art. Art with a strong purpose… what a concept! Thanks for the documentary.

  • chuck

    I currently own a painting called Pueblo Mexicano by Jose Clemente Orozco. Does any one who is into
    Orozco’s history of painting know the value of such painting. I was offered a very hefty sum recently.

    Orozco’s Pueblo Mexicano used to hang on the wall of the living room in the influential architect Luis Barragan’s House and Studio. The house is a world heritage site and Barragan is a Pritzker winning architect (Nobel Prize of architecture)

    I visited Guadalajara recently and had the pleasure of seeing the burning man along with the rest of his murals in Cabanas and Palacio de Govierno. They are AMAZING to say the least. Miguel Hidalgo in Palacio de Govierno is so overwhelmingly alive. The view as you walk up the stairs was like slow motion. I recommend visiting Guadalajara for this and the rest of it’s beauty.

  • Hannah

    Wow these are amazing!
    I just don’t get what message he was trying to get across for a lot of them.
    Does anyone care enough to try to explain this to me?

  • Linda Brown

    I have an Orozco work that was recently suggested is probably a print, titled “Zapatistas”. I might be willing to sell it, if you are interested. At one point in the past, I recall seeing a print listed for sale on e-bay with bids starting at $500.00. If you are interested, contact me.

    If you wish to sell your print. I will purchase it.

    yo tengo un amigo q tienen en su casa en Puebla un cuadro de Orozco segun el vale como 70 pues no es muy grande y esta muy bello pero los vale?

  • Moises

    Hell people i was just wodering what type of paint did he use in the Gods of the Modern World painting and did he use a canvas?

  • george jones

    I didn’t know about Orozco until I saw this documentary a couple of years ago, and since then, I’ve remained enthralled by his way of putting his feelings onto a surface. I’m 51 years old, so that may have some bearing on the fact that to me, most of his work looks a bit like the best Pink Floyd album cover that could have ever existed. Love his perspective and talent! :)
