Red will be the exacerbation of amorous passion, that marked her life; it will follow the blood, which will provide freedom from pain and martyrdom. Like counterpart in Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata figures sienna connotes land, Homeland and consequently the place where a person's identity is forged. They are themselves very strong or very visual weight figures, then, color nuances, accompanying. The color mobilizes emotions upwelling in the viewer. This would be a point of contact with certain aspects of the expressionist movement: lifting prints. As the author already has said, "the brushstroke and color" are the key to that aura of mysticism that surrounds each painting, setting. a connection between the earthly and the sacred.
