Catalogue Note

“In his best canvases, [Guerrero Galván] lovingly depicts children and women. His characters, treated with great lyricism, appear eternalized in a sort of trance, detained in the movement they seemingly will carry out. The colors are always warm in his paintings, the varied gamma of earthy hues and reds, whites, and blacks reflect his taste and a selection that is conscious of a chromatic tradition emerging from the use of color that he witnessed in his native town during his formative years.”

—Fernando Gamboa in Visión poética de un gran pintor: Jesús Guerrero Galván (1910-1973), 50 óleos en su exposición homenaje (exhibition catalogue), Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico City, 1977, p. 3
