Lesser known but talented muralist Desiderio H. Xochitiotzin lived in Tlaxcala and left a monumental work of 450 square yards of al fresco murals in the Government Palace depicting the history of the State of Tlaxcala from Prehispanic times and up until the Porfiriato Period.

Also he left Murals in Puebla at the Newspaper Offices and many oil paintings…
