Vendedora de Alcatraces by Diego Rivera

Almost all of Rivera's art told a story, many of which depicted Mexican society, the Mexican Revolution, or reflected his own personal social and political beliefs.

Diego Rivera's murals and canvas paintings recaptured Mexican history. He chose as his subjects not only social commentary, but the earth, the farmer, the laborer, the costumes and popular characters of Mexico. His style was simplified and colorful, precise, direct and realistic.
