Before El Chivo (Emmanuel Lubeski), Academy Award Winner cinematographer for the last two years, there was Gabriel Figueroa, the great Mexican cinematographer of the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema. Figueroa worked on more than 200 films and collaborated with leading directors from Mexico, the United States and Europe including John Ford, John Houston, Emilio Fernández and Luis Buñuel.

Figueroa trained as a painter and photographer before transitioning into the world of film in 1932. His artistic background greatly influenced Figueroa’s distinctive and vivid approach to cinematic composition. Inspired from a diverse range of influences from Renaissance perspective, German Expressionist cinema, to Goya’s prints and landscapes, Figueroa forged evocative and long lasting images of Mexican culture, landscape and people.

Under The Mexican Sky: Gabriel Figueroa – Art and Film, is a retrospective of Gabriel Figureroa’s work and artistic influences, now on view through June 27, 2015 at El Museo del Barrio in NYC. The exhibition features film clips, photographs, prints, and posters, as well as work by other artists and filmmakers from the period such as Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco Luis Buñuel, Sergei Eisenstein, Edward Weston, and Tina Modotti. Under the Mexican Sky provides a comprehensive view of the enduring Mexican iconography that Figueroa crafted throughout his career as a cinematographer.
