Felix Parra Hernandez (1845-1919), born in Morelia, was a Mexican painter. He entered the College of San Nicolas historic to study painting at the Academy. He worked as instructor of ornament drawing at the Academy of San Carlos. His works, and particularly his images of Indians, served as inspiration for muralists such as Diego Rivera and Jose Clemente Orozco. He was more inclined to the historical issues. His strokes were loose, giving his works the qualities of texture and gradual contrast in the handling of light.
