Diego Rivera, 1886 - 1957 b. Orn in Guanajuato, Mexico in 1886. Study painting at an early age and in 1907 moved to Paris 14 years.
Rivera encountered works of great masters as Cézanne, Gauguin, Renoir, and Matisse. He was searching a form that could express the complexities of his day and reach a wide audience. He found it when he studies the Renaissance frescoes of Italy. He was able to introduce his work the everyday people life with mural paintings done on fresh plaster in universities and public buildings to tackle themes of history and future of humanity. His work appealed to the peoples interest in the history of technology, and desire to understand progress in the growing industrial societies of the 1930s, saw the workers struggle as symbol of the fragile political ground were capitalism trod.
A lifelong Marxist, saw it as antidote to elite walls of galleries and museums. In 1930, Rivera made the first of a series of trips that would alter the course of American painting. These two pieces firmly but subtly incorporated Riveras radical politics, while maintaining a sense of simple historicity. One of Riveras greatest gifts was his ability to condense a complex historical subject, such as the history of Californias natural resources down to its most essential parts. For Rivera, the foundation of history could be seen in the working class, lives spent by war and industry in the name of progress.In these first two commissions and all of the American murals to follow, Rivera would investigate the struggles of the working class. In 1932, at the height of the Great Depression, Rivera arrived in Detroit, where, at the behest of Henry Ford, he began a paean to the American worker on the walls of the Detroit Institute of Arts.
Depicted industrial life in the United States, concentrating on the car plant workers. Though the fresco was the focus of much controversy, Edsel Ford, Henrys son, defended the work and it remains today Riveras most significant painting in America. However, he did not do so well with the Rockefellers in New York City.In 1933 the Rockefellers commissioned Rivera to paint a mural for the RCA lobby in Rockefeller Center. Man at the Crossroads to depict the social, political, industrial, and scientific possibilities of the twentieth century, he included a scene of workers marching. It was not the subject matter that inflamed the patrons, but the portrait of Lenin leading the demonstration. When Rivera refused to remove the portrait, he was ordered to stop and the painting was destroyed. Rivera remained a central force in the development of a national art in Mexico throughout his life.
In 1957, at the age of seventy, Rivera died in Mexico City. Perhaps one his greatest legacies, was his impact on Americas conception of public art. In scenes of American life on public buildings, Rivera provided the first inspiration for Franklin Delano Roosevelts WPA program.
Both his original painting style and the force of his ideas remain major influences on American painting. We trust the Provenance and beauty.
