ALFREDO RAMOS MARTINEZ

BIOGRAPHY
Artist Art Brokerage 1872-1946 - Mexican Artist Alfredo Martinez is best known for his modern Mexican paintings and murals. His work did not directly reflect traditional Mexican art nor did it embrace the European modernist movements of the time, but rather his unique style was based on his heritage and his thorough academic background. Born in Monterey, Mexico in 1872, Martinez remained there for his early education. He then studied at the Academia Nacional de Belles Artes in Mexico City between 1884 and 1892. As a young artist Martinez caught the attention of American, Phoebe Hearst who arranged financial support for him to study abroad. Martinez studied, lived and worked in Paris, France, and was eventually able to support himself after he received an award for one of his paintings at the Salon dAutomme in 1906. He returned to his homeland in 1907 and three years later had accepted the position of Director of the School of Fine Arts in Mexico City. He also continued to paint portraits and commissioned murals. In 1928, he married, and he and his wife had a daughter. The childs health was fragile, and the Martinez family relocated to Los Angeles, California where they could seek superior medical care for her. Martinez worked on commissioned murals while living in Los Angeles and was soon accepted as part of the artistic community there. He was recognized for his Mexican genre scenes painted in rich browns and ochres. His work established him as part of the Mexican School but he did not have the political message of his Mexican contemporaries such as Diego Rivera and Jose Orozco. His artwork was included in solo and group exhibitions at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the San Diego Art Gallery and the Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. While living in Southern California, Martinez painted murals and frescoes in many Los Angeles hotels, private homes and chapels. The last project with which he was involved was a panel mural at the Margaret Fowler Memorial Garden at Scripps College in Claremont, California. Only two of the nine panels were completed before Martinez died in 1946.
