His Representational Paintings Have A Melancholic Sobriety, And Include Faces From The Past Great Masters, Often Floating In A Diffuse Haze. In 1953 He Entered The Escuela Nacional De Pintura Y Escultura 'La Esmeralda' In Mexico City . He Painted In An Expressionistic Realist Style, Depicting Frightening Figures Bearing The Scars Of Their Experience Of Urban Low Life. His Paintings Contain Echoes Of Goya And Jose Clemente Orozco And Achieve Dramatic Effects Through A Skilful Use Of Chiaroscuro And Tenebrist Effects. The Psychology Of The Characters Is Captured With Accuracy, And Their Appearance Is Carefully Depicted, But The Background In Which They Appear Imbues Them With An Air Of Timelessness. In 1964 He Painted Two Murals At The Museo Nacional De Antropologia, Mexico City , The Magic World Of The Yucatan Peninsula And A Decoration With Abstract Motifs. In Zacatecas, There Is A Museum Named After Him; In This Museum, His Vast Mask Collection Is Shown.
