Mexican sculptor and painter Juan Soriano has died in a hospital in Mexico City at the age of 85.
One of the last surviving members of the Mexican School cultural movement, Soriano's friends and contemporaries included the writer Octavio Paz.
Soriano's agent Marek Keller said the artist had suffered irreversible brain damage following an infection.
Soriano's work was exhibited around the world 130 times in a career last nearly 70 years.
Among his public work in Mexico is a large bronze sculpture of a dove outside the Museum of Contemporary Art in Monterrey.
The Mexican School movement, which drew upon European styles such as expressionism, began after the removal of the dictatorship of President Porfirio Diaz in 1910.
The artist's first exhibit was shown at a museum in his native Guadalajara when he was a teenager.
His work was displayed in shows in China, Spain and the United States.
