Elena Huerta (1908 – 1997)
Elena Huerta Múzquiz (1908 – 1997) was a Mexican artist best known for her mural work in her hometown of Saltillo, Coahuila, Mexico. Most of her art career was dedicated to teaching, but she was one of the founders of the Compañía de Teatro Infantil with German Cueto, Lola Cueto, Angelina Beloff and Leopoldo Méndez, the Liga de Escritores y Artistas Revolucionarios and a founding member of the Salón de la Plástica Mexicana. She created three mural projects in Saltillo, with the last done when she was 65 years of age, a work over 450m², the largest mural work created by a woman in Mexico.
