  • 6. José Clemente Orozco
  • 7. José Clemente Orozco. Gods of theModern World, 1932-1934. Fresco.One panel in a cycle of murals entitled An Epic of AmericanCivilization. Baker Memorial Library, Dartmouth College, NewHampshire, USA.
  • 8. The Critique of LearningThe artist Orozco presentsthe argument against thepursuit of sterileknowledge.sterile: adj. unable toproduce children/totallyclean/free from bacteriaor any other livingmicroorganism.
  • 9. The Critique of LearningThis painting is a warningagainst the academic(teacher/student of highereducation) who is completelyoccupied with sterile researchor learning that has no valueoutside of academia.academia: n. the environmentor community concerned withthe pursuit of research,education, and scholarship.
  • 10. The Critique of LearningOrozco believed thatsterile education passesfor knowledge, but itactually keeps theyoung busy withoutgiving them any realwisdom orunderstanding.
  • 11. The Critique of LearningThe rhythm of the lines isstrong, from theverticals of theacademic robes, to theblack and white of theskeleton’s ribs, to thebook spines below.
  • 12. José Clemente Orozco. An Epic AmericanCivilization, 1932-1934. Fresco.A 20-panel cycle in Baker Memorial Library, Dartmouth College,New Hampshire, USA.
  • 13. José’s thoughts… “The American continental races are now becoming aware of theirown personality, as it emerges from two cultural currents—theindigenous and the European. The great American myth ofQuetzalcoatl is a living one embracing both elements and pointingclearly, by its prophetic nature, to the responsibility shared equallyby the two Americas of creating here an authentic New Worldcivilization. I feel that this subject has a special significance for aninstitution such as Dartmouth College which has its origin in acontinental rather than in a local outlook—the foundation ofDartmouth, I understand, predating the foundation of the UnitedStates.” As Orozco surely had been told, Dartmouth College was charteredfor the purpose of “the education and instruction of Youth of theIndian Tribes in this Land . . . and also of English Youth and anyothers.”
