The Quiz: Artistic murals flourished in Mexico beginning in the 1920s after the conclusion of what?
A A national strike by artists

C A national ban on public art
After the military phase of the Mexican Revolution ended in the early 1920s, many artists in Mexico turned their attention to painting murals that promoted certain social ideals and underscored their embrace of Mexico as a mestizo nation, one with both European and Indigenous traditions. The government even launched a project to hire some of Mexico’s best artists to paint murals, including the three who would become known as ‘Los Tres Grandes’ of the Mexican muralism movement, David Alfaro Siqueiros, José Clemente Orozco, and Diego Rivera.
The correct answer to this quiz is The Mexican Revolution.
