Studying the Mexican Revolution through its art presents fantastic opportunities for research. Many of the artists, like Goitia, are historical figures themselves and played an important role in chronicling important events and injustices. The muralists offer a historical narrative in visual form, bringing the dramatic events of the revolution, and of the history of Mexico, to life in vivid color. This library guide offers some ideas for researching the artists and events of the Mexican Revolution, through monographic works, scholarly articles, and historical newspapers.
