Who was Federico Cantú Garza?

Federico Heraclio Cantú Garza was a Mexican painter, engraver and sculptor. While considered to be a member of the Mexican muralism movement, his style was noticeably different, mostly for adhering to older and more academic forms of painting and sculpture. He has his most success exhibiting in the United States and Europe, but he did murals and sculptures in Mexico. His best known work is a sculpture called “La maternidad” which has been adapted as logo of the Instituto Mexicano de Seguro Social.
