Luis Jiménez

Luis Jiménez (1940-1996) drawings and prints draw from the struggle of everyday life and exhibit a true empathy for his subjects. His work draws from numerous influences: his childhood experiences in his father’s neon sign shop; the WPA mural tradition of the Depression era that heroicized labor; the Baroque tradition of emotionally expressive sculpture; and the graphic traditions of early 20th century Mexican art.
Jiménez’s work has been widely exhibited and can be found in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Chicago Art Institute, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the National Collection of Fine Arts in Washington D.C, Jiménez’ work has been featured in the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum in Chicago, France, Belgium, and Tokyo.
