Summary

Cubist portrait of Spanish writer Ramón Gómez De la Sena by Mexican painter Diego RiveraEnglish: Retrato cubista del escritor español Ramón Gómez De la Sena por el pintor mexicano Diego Rivera

Diego Rivera (1886—1957) Mexican painter whose bold large-scale murals stimulated a revival of fresco painting in Latin America. A government scholarship enabled Rivera to study art at the Academy of San Carlos in Mexico City from age 10, and a grant from the governor of Veracruz enabled him to continue his studies in Europe in 1907. He studied in Spain and in 1909 settled in Paris, where he became a friend of Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, and other leading modern painters. About 1917 he abandoned the Cubist style in his own work and moved closer to the Post-Impressionism of Paul Cézanne, adopting a visual language of simplified forms and bold areas of colour.
