During his stay in Europe, Atl, amongst other achievements, walked from Rome to Paris and later from Paris to Madrid, won a silver medal in the Salon de Paris for a self-portrait and was profoundly influenced by the impressionist and Post-impressionist movements then in vogue in Europe.
Art in Mexico at the time was almost exclusively limited to imitations of Old Masters, especially of their religious themes. Creativity was stifled.
Atl returned to Mexico, to Guadalajara, in full of anti-academic sentiments and convinced that Mexican art needed a revolution. He held a surprisingly successful exhibition in Tlaquepaque and another larger one in the garden of San Francisco church in downtown Guadalajara.
His revolutionary beliefs did not however endear him to calm, provincial Tapatios and he soon moved back to Mexico City where he became great friends of Joaquin Clausell, later to become Mexico's best known Impressionist painter. At the same time, Atl became infatuated with Clausell's 14 year old niece who, probably fortunately, never reciprocated this feeling!
Atlcolors are still manufactured today and enjoy widespread popularity for the relative ease with which they can be used. His return to the political confusion that followed the deposing of President Diaz, now always referred to as the Mexican Revolution, was on the side of Carranza, an underdog in the power struggle at that time.
When then tide turned and Carranza assumed power, Atl was made Director of the Fine Arts Academy, an institution which he promptly closed!
He founded various pro-Carranza newspapers, on one of which both Siqueiros and Orozco worked. During the Revolution, Atl had several very narrow escapes from death, short periods of imprisonment and in general led a full and adventurous life!
Even Atl eventually conceded that Nahui Olin, in reality a nymphomaniac, was amongst other things, a "green-eyed serpent". Atl's contribution to the Mexican art revolution had already been considerable; he had encouraged, aided and in several cases taught many major artists of the next generation including Orozco, Siqueiros, Clausell, Zaraga, Galvan and others, including a then unknown Diego Rivera.
Atl had pressured his wealthier friends to download all the works of a Rivera exhibition held to fund Rivera's first trip to Europe. He had invented Atlcolors, painted several murals, though none have stood the test of time, overseen the rebirth of mural art in Mexico, helped in the transformation of art education throughout the country and made respectable the popular art forms of Mexico such as toys and handicrafts.
Atl prepared a two-volume study, Folk Arts in Mexico, published by the Mexican government in Atl's strong love of the outdoors and his active nature are seen in his many paintings which portray the landscapes of his era.
