The Popocapelt, Spirited Morning is an art print of an original painting by the artist Marsden Hartley when he visited Mexico City in 1932.
Marsden Hartley was entranced by the two snow-capped volcanoes, Popocatépetl and Ixtaccihuatl, surrounding the city. Marsden was enthusiastic about the ancient Aztec and Mayan artifacts and primordial myths of creation. He was inspired the painting from a legend about a love story.
According to legend, a Tlaxcaltecas chief promised the hand of his beautiful daughter Iztacc to the brave warrior Popo. Falsely told that her lover had been killed in battle, the girl died from grief. When the young warrior returned, he took her body into the hills and knelt beside her to keep watch. To protect them, the gods covered their forms in eternal snow.
Hartley was inspired by the scenery and culture of the different countries he lived in.
