One of many famous murals by Jose Clemente Orozco
This is the artwork of Jose Clemente Orozco, famous muralist who was a native of Jalisco, Mexico. This is just one of many murals that you'll find by him on this site.
This one resides in the Government Palace (Palacio de Gobierno de Guadalajara).
Pictured is the priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, known to all as the father of Mexican Independence. Learn how he inspired a nation to fight for freedom here on Mexico Independence Day.
Jose Clemente Orozco is known to have "revolutionized the fresco technique," because he painted the surface of the wall while it was damp enabling the color to be absorbed.

The following murals are from the Guadalajara Cemetery known as Panteon Mezquitan by an unknown artist.
These are just a few of several scenes that span about a block or so. You might not be able to tell but they are very large! I believe the walls were at least 10 feet high.
