Diego Rivera was born in December of 1886, and was Mexico’s most famous painter. He rebelled against the traditional school of painting and developed his own style, a combination of historical, social, and critical ideas depicting the cultural evolution of Mexico. Diego Rivera painted murals that celebrated the history of Mexico and its people, and also depicted contributions of working class Americans in murals in the United States. Rivera was able to incorporate such large themes into his work because of the medium with which he is indelibly associated: the wall fresco. He was married to another famous Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo. Diego Rivera died in November of 1957, in Mexico City, Mexico.
