Francisco Corzas was regarded as a painter of Mexican Expressionism. Much of his work involved the human figure and depicted an understanding of human values. His paintings are valued for their expressiveness and drama as well as his expert technique. His use of color and light emphasized the visual effects of the whole.
Stylistically, Corzas’ early work can leave the viewer with a sense of angst that might reflect his actual living conditions of hunger and deprivation. In the 1960’s, he was active in the Nueva Presencia and Los Interioristas movements, which defended humanistic values in art. His inclusion of clown figures in his work may reflect a sense of alienation of modern society as it has with other artists.
