With an original, significative language, Jesús Guerrero Galván worked with specific themes in his paintings, focused primarily on peasant women and children, as well as popular Mexican culture. Even though he participated in politics in the 50s, he never used politics as a theme in his art. Nonetheless, this period of time was extremely important to his easel work; his artwork revealed a profound nationalistic spirit that looked to rescue indigenous dignity. The key to his work has always been in his models, luminous backgrounds, composite spaces, and the constant presence of blue tones, ochres, and pinks that transmit an esthetic and sublime poetry.
