Rivera painted his first mural, in which ethnic Mexican subjects were portrayed in a political context.


osmangemci.com Rivera went to Paris , France , to live and work with the great gathering of artists in Montparnasse where his friend Amedeo Modigliani painted his portrait in 1914.
In his undisciplined and increasingly violent private life, Rivera fathered several children from brief affairs, abandoning all of them. Whilst still married to Angelina Beloff, who bore him a son who died during earliest infancy, Rivera embarked on a relationship with the Russian emigre Cubist painter Marie Vorobieff-Stebelska, known also by the nickname Marevna given her by Maxim Gorky, who herself in 1919 bore Rivera a daughter, named Marika.
In the early 1920s, Rivera left France and returned to Mexico , where he became interested in left-wing politics. There, he painted his first mural, in which ethnic Mexican subjects were portrayed in a political context.
Several marriages and love affairs later he was introduced to Frida Kahlo, a Communist. She became a famous and noted Mexican painter only in the later stages of her life. He later went to Moscow , Russia , but was expelled by the authorities because of his involvement in anti-Soviet politics. In 1929, he returned to Mexico , and at age 43 he married the 22-year-old Kahlo.
Having joined the International Communist League, he became friends with Soviet exile Leon Trotsky, who moved into his home in Mexico for a while. But they had a falling out and, shortly after he left Rivera's home, Trotsky was assassinated. Some suspected that Rivera was involved in the murder, though it is proven to have been highly unlikely. Following Trotsky's death, Rivera and Kahlo both became Anti-Revisionists/Anti-Stalinists.
A few years after the 1954 death of his wife Frida Kahlo, he contracted a rare form of cancer and died on November 24, 1957 . Diego Rivera is interred in the Panten de Dolores in Mexico City .
