About The Artist

Sofía Bassi (1913–1997) was a Mexican painter and writer noted for her surrealist work as well as her personal life, which included five years in prison for murder. She maintained an active career despite incarceration, painting her first mural in prison in Acapulco, with the assistance of Alberto Gironella, José Luis Cuevas, Rafael Coronel, and Francisco Corzas. This mural can now be found at the municipal building of the city.
