Description

Diego Rivera is widely regarded as the greatest Mexican painter of the twentieth century. His large-scale, public murals expressed his Marxist politics—a strong commitment to workers' rights and an abiding interest in the history of human progress and technology. His work drew widespread acclaim, if also sometimes controversy, and helped establish Rivera as an international celebrity in the 1930s and '40s. Rivera was born in Guanajuato, Mexico, in 1886 and began painting at an early age. He moved to Paris by the time he was twenty-one where he learned to integrate Cubism with traditional, Mexican symbolism. When he returned to Mexico in 1922, the country was just emerging from the Mexican Revolution (1910–1920). The conflict had lasted ten years, caused the death of over a million people, and resulted in the overthrow of Mexico's ruling elite. Rivera collaborated with artists, writers, and officials in the new socialist government to promote post-Revolutionary Mexican culture and national identity.
