The revolutionary nationalist spirit found expression in the arts, much as it had in Mexico earlier in the century. Following the Mexican example, talented artists such as Walter Solón Romero (1927–99) and Miguel Alandia Pantoja (1914–75) worked with the new government, painting dramatic murals that depicted a history of popular struggle dating back to the time of the conquest and anticipating a future of social harmony and equality. Shown here are details from the grand murals in the Museum of the Revolution, inaugurated in 1964, imagining the colonial past and the postrevolutionary future.
