Francisco Mora (painter)
Francisco Mora was born in 1922 in Uruapan, Michoacán. His father was a weaver, musician, and Mexican artist. In 1941, Mora relocated to Mexico City where he began exhibiting with the Taller de Gráfica Popular, a communal graphics workshop founded by artists Leopold Méndez, Pablo O'Higgins and Luis Arenal that built on Mexico’s rich tradition of political printmaking in order to advance revolutionary political and social causes.
In 1947, Mora married renowned African-American artist Elizabeth Catlett, with whom he exhibited widely.
Francisco Mora died in 2002.
