In the mourning centenary of one of the greatest artists of the 20th century in Mexico, the exhibition makes available to the public the versatile range of genres that orbited his work, today the artistic heritage of Mexico. Herrán, famous representative of Mexican plastic modernism, was nourished by international trends to portray both exoticism and symbolism as figures of everyday life and ordinary people, who configured in their paintings an imaginary of the "national soul".

The dialogue with various colleagues, teachers and international and local influences allows an analysis of the painter's work with a renewed vision, to understand a plastic phenomenon whose symbolism is an essential part of our identity.
