in detail

From 1922 to 1926, Orozco painted murals on the three floors of the north side of the large courtyard of the Colegio de San Ildefonso. One of these is La trinchera, which highlights the revolutionary tragedy in matters of violence and death through three figures.

The use of red and shades suggesting blood and gunfire is perceived in the mural. Curiously, La Trinchera was printed on 100 pesos notes in the 70s.
