Mexico is known for its folk art traditions, derived mostly from the indigenous and Spanish crafts.
Pre-Columbian art thrived over a wide timescale, from 1800 BC to AD 1500. Certain artistic characteristics were repeated throughout the region.
After the Mexican Revolution, a new generation of Mexican artists led a vibrant national movement that incorporated political, historical, and folk themes in their work.
At Diane Pearl’s, we carry every imaginable form of high quality artwork, representing Mexican artisans who have learned their skills from parents and grandparents.
These traditions have been handed down from generation to generation.
We carry a broad range of traditional canvas and wood-backed paintings and drawing to the extremely rare forms of sculptures created from plants and trees that grow throughout the Mexican wilderness.

Between the Spanish conquest and the early 20th century, Mexican fine arts were largely in imitation of European traditions.
The painters Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, and David Alfaro Siqueiros became world famous for their grand murals, often displaying clear social messages.
