The Museum has acquired excellent examples of Mérida’s works, and its collection illustrates the artist’s broad diversity of themes and media –from his Images of Guatemala (1925-27) to his Birds of Paradise (1936) and his The Three Kings (1965). In 2014, the Museum acquired an important set of Mérida’s original gouaches, which were used to create the artist’s popular portfolio Mexican Costume (1941) of 25 serigraphs. Lastly, the large and impressive glass mosaic mural that Mérida made for Hemisfair’68 has been reinstalled in the newly refurbished Convention Center.
