Mexican artist Alfredo Ramos Martínez (1872-1946) painted several exceptional fresco murals in San Diego including El Día del Mercado, first displayed in Coronado in 1938 at La Avenida Café, and now displayed at the newly renovated Coronado Public Library. It was donated to the City of Coronado by Gus and Barbara Theberge in 1994. The San Diego Museum of Art owns seven works by Ramos Martínez, including the oil paintings on the front and back cover of this issue of The Journal of San Diego History. We are grateful to Derrick Cartwright and the San Diego Museum of Art for permission to use these images.
