Following the Mexican Revolution, many artists used figurative imagery to praise workers and peasants, and call for social reform. Others rejected this path, adopting abstract languages drawn from Cubism, Futurism, Constructivism and Lyrical Expressionism. See the paintings, murals, and public monuments by leading figures, including Carlos Mérida, Gunther Gerzso, Mathias Goeritz, and Lilia Carrillo.
