LACMA is presenting an exhibition of the works of cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa, whose works included "Night of the Iguana" for John Huston and numerous films for Mexican director Emilio Fernandez.

"Under the Mexican Sky: Gabriel Figueroa -- Art and Film" features some 300 pieces associated with Mr. Figueroa, including film sequences, posters and documents from his archives and those of the Televisa Foundation. The exhibition opens to the public Sept. 22 and runs through Feb. 2, 2014, in the Art of the Americas building.

Mr. Figueroa (1907-97) developed an iconic body of work in the 1930s that captured the rebirth of Mexico following the devastating revolution of the 1910s, and stands alongside such Mexican luminaries as Diego Rivera, Jose Clemente Orozco and Manuel Alvarez Bravo.

The show will also include modern works by artists inspired by Mr. Figueroa's cinematography.
