The Harald Wagner Collection of Teotihuacan Murals

Mural with Feathered Serpent and Flowering Trees (detail), A.D. 600–750. Mexico, Teotihuacan, Techinantitla. Volcanic ash, lime, mineral pigment, and mud backing. Bequest of Harald J. Wagner. 1985.104.1a-b

The Harald Wagner collection of Teotihuacan murals is the largest and most important outside of Mexico. The murals are remarkable for their quality, condition and iconographic breadth. Secretly removed from their site in the 1960s, they were left to the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco in a surprise bequest by Harald Wagner, an energetic San Francisco art lover who had spent years living in Mexico.
