DIEGO RIVERA

BIOGRAPHY
DIEGO RIVERA Artist Art Brokerage: Diego Rivera Mexican Artist: b. 1886-1957. Diego Rivera was one of the great hero-figures in the history of twentieth-century Latin American culture. Rivera, born in the mining town of Guanajuato, was the son of a school-teacher. Rivera's art education was thorough, and thoroughly conventional. His family had moved to Mexico City in 1892, and he studied at the official Academia de San Carlos (established in 1781) for seven years. In 1906 he was awarded a government travelling scholarship, and went first to Spain, then to Paris, arriving there in 1908. He gradually absorbed the Parisian avant-garde styles of the day, moving from Neo-Impressionism to Cubism. By 1918 Rivera, still working in Paris, was well known in avant- garde circles. In common with a number of leading artists of the time (they included, for a brief period, Picasso) he had abandoned Cubism and was working in a consciously 'classical' style inspired by Cezanne. The first murals in his fully mature style, a fusion of many elements taken from the Cubists, from Gauguin, from Rousseau, from Pre-Columbian narrative reliefs and perhaps most of all from fifteenth-century Italian fresco painting, were done for the east patio of the Secretaria de Educacion Publica in Mexico City in 1923. Rivera found ingenious ways of telling stonestaking hints from Mexican popular engravers. These borrowings cannot disguise the fact that his aims remained fundamentallv opposed to basic Modernist concepts. His work had tremendous impact on the American painters of the time, most of all upon the Regionalists, such as Thomas Hart Benton (1889-1975). Because Mexican law, Rivera's art CAN NOT Be exported from Mexico Since 1982. In Other Words, it is illegal to sell Diego Rivera Without HAVING Proof that they were in outside of the country before 1982. Sometimes the Mexican Government the right to Claim Exercise Those paintings. Please do not list any paintings without full authentication, provenance and proof of export date!
