The breadth of the treatment, through essays by Esther Acevedo, America Juarez, Irene Herner, Alberta Torres, Manuel Manmn, Christopher Fulton, Maria Noel Lapoujade, Laura Gonzalez, Cynthia MacMullin, Jorge Reynoso, Lorenzo Rocha, Miguel Angel Fernandez, and Itala Schmelz, offers a novel approach to the subject of landscape in Siqueiros's work, combining historiographic interests with the identification of certain narrative and dramatic constants, in an exploration of his artistic development, his permanent fascinations, and his most powerful visions.
Siqueiros said that looking at a series of easel paintings was like reading an indented text, which is why he sought the enveloping experience of the mural. Nevertheless, in Siqueiros Landscape Painter, four decades of his work is displayed in a visual narrative that reconstructs a landscape turning 360 degrees on itself.
