Point of Interest Details

Flower Vendors is a mural in Margaret Fowler Garden by the artist Alfredo Ramos Martinez. Alfredo Ramos Martinez is often celebrated as the father of the Mexican Mural Movement of the 20th century. Martinez began the 100-foot-long mural in 1946, but sadly died the same year, well before its completion. The mural displays the different phases of buon fresco, in which pigments in water are painted on to wet plaster, and fresco secco, in which pigments are painted on to dry plaster. The mural was cleaned by conservators Eduardo Sanchez, Jerry Podany, and Aneta Zebala.
