About Diego Rivera

osmangemci.com Diego Rivera (December 8, 1886 ENovember 24, 1957), full name Diego Mara de la Concepcin Juan Nepomuceno Estanislao de la Rivera y Barrientos Acosta y Rodrguez, was a Mexican painter and muralist, born in Guanajuato, Guanajuato, of Jewish Converso heritage.
Rivera was a prolific Mexican artist. He became famous for murals that portrayed Mexican life and history. Rivera was a controversial figure because of his radical political beliefs and his attacks on the church and clergy. Although Rivera was born in Guanajuato, in the 1920s he became involved in the new Mexican mural movement. With such Mexican artists as Jos Clemente Orozco, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Rufino Tamayo, he began to experiment with fresco painting on large walls. Rivera soon developed his own style of large, simplified figures and bold colors. Many of his murals deal symbolically with Mexican society and thought after the country's 1910 Revolution. Some of Rivera's best murals are in the National Palace in Mexico City and at the National Agricultural School in Chapingo, near Texcoco.
