Rosenberg, Samuel (Sam) (American/Pittsburgh, 1896-1972), Procession, Mexico, 1942, oil on Masonite, 24 x 20 inches, signed and dated lower left and stamped with estate stamp on panel reverse, Provenance: Acquired from Libby Rosenberg, with the artist's gilded strip frame, 25.5 x 21.5 inches, Rosenberg may have visited Mexico in the 1930's or 1940's but was certainly acquainted with the Mexican Muralist Movement of which this painting is clearly influenced. Rosenberg was clearly thinking of the famous group. The Mexican Muralism movement emerged in the 1920s and was characterized by large-scale, public murals that depicted historical, social, and political themes. The three most prominent artists associated with this movement are Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Jose Clemente Orozco. They, along with other muralists, aimed to create art accessible to the general public, often using powerful visual storytelling to communicate their messages.
