Art #bizarrely Mexican

The art of Mexico, in early 20th Century, is superficially bizarre.

An exhibition at Paris’s Grand Palais tracks art made in Mexico during the first half of the 20th century, focusing on the influence of the European avant-garde and Mexicans’ celebrated attitude toward death.

A rag-tag bunch of painters glory in European Baroque, exaggerating the symbolic attitudes to such an extent their work marked the end of that era.
