Untitled (Four Figures) Jose Luis Cuevas.  Excellent condition, archivally matted and framed.  ( 16 3/4in  H x 25in W image,  31 1/2in   H X 37 3/4in framed).   José Luis Cuevas is a Mexican artist and was one of the first to challenge the then dominant Mexican muralism movement as a prominent member of the Generación de la Ruptura (Breakaway Generation). He is a mostly self-taught artist, whose styles and influences are moored to the darker side of life, often depicting distorted figures and the debasement of humanity. He has remained a controversial figure throughout his career, not only for his often shocking images, but also for his opposition to writers and artists who he feels participate in corruption or create only for money. In 1992, the José Luis Cuevas Museum was opened in the historic center of Mexico City holding most of his work and his personal art collection.  He is represented in major museums in North America, South America and Europe.
