Alfonso X. Pena (1903-1964)

This extraordinarily sensitive native of Tamaulipas was born in Ciudad Victoria, in the heart of an artistic family. He began his public life at a very early age as a cartoonist for El Mundo in Tampico, then left his hometown in search of better opportunities and moved to New York. He belonged to a group of artists comprising Rufino Tamayo, José Juan Tablada, Matías Santoyo and Miguel Covarrubias, among others. During that time, he improved his drawing technique and use of color. When Alfonso, a charismatic bohemian at heart, came back to Mexico, he set up a workshop in Pescaditos in Mexico City, where he produced extremely creative works. Alfonso X. Peña painted murals in Paris, Los Angeles, Caracas, Mazatlán and Cuernavaca and staged major exhibitions in Spain, the United States, Italy and France. In 1950, he received the José Clemente Orozco medal and in 1957 he was awarded a gold medal as a muralist at the International Exhibition in Paris.
