When analyzing the artistic production of the second decade of the XX century one can easily see the ties with Europe, but at the same time a very particular conception of painting in Mexico is evident: an art developed in the framework of an aesthetic that without the need to distance itself, could answer to the conditions of its own idea of modernity in the arts. El carnicerito by Agustín Lazo is exactly one of the proposals reasoned between the modern and the traditional, between the protocubist forms of the avant-garde and the city or work characters that the artists made the subject of painting with the prerogative of being Mexican, modern and universal, all at the same time.
