- n. Mexican painter of murals depicting protest and revolution (1896-1974)
“His research into the period and into the life of Siqueiros is extensive, the grant permitting him to interview many who had known the artist, among them Angelica Arenal de Siqueiros, his last wife, most ardent admirer, and comrade in arms.”
“At times Siqueiros is referred to as David and at times as Siqueiros but with no reason for the switch.”
“Unfortunately, they're all in black and white, and the work of Siqueiros is deserving of color.”
“Siqueiros is equally mesmerized by human-induced combustion.”
“As Ms. MacMullin writes in the museum's blog: "While Siqueiros is represented in the historic canon of modern Mexican art as one of the leading proponents of public art for social action — largely due to his mural painting — it was through his easel painting that he studied an extensive variety of techniques and styles that allowed him to examine pictorial space, composition, light, shadow and color.”
“Along with Orozco and Rivera, two other famous Mexican painters, Siqueiros is celebrated for his monumental murals, but his easel paintings haven't aged well -- and I'm not talking about their physical condition.”
“Rivera’s acceptance of commissions from Mexico’s conservative government under President Calles and from North American Capitalists such as Rockefeller and Ford, meant, in Siqueiros’s opinion, that he had sold his soul to the devil.”

“Increasingly here in Mexico's capital, the graffiti mural is coming to represent what some local experts feel is a new movement in mural art in the great tradition of early 20th century Mexican muralists such as Diego Rivera and David Siqueiros.”
“One sees about a dozen big names — the great Mexican muralists of the 1930s, Rivera, Orozco and Siqueiros; the singular Frida Kahlo; and Yanquis modernists like Jackson Pollock and Robert Motherwell — but twice as many unknowns.”
