Mexican painter Diego Rivera honored in Cuba

Mexican painter Diego Rivera honored in Cuba

Havana, Nov 24 (Prensa Latina) The Havana-based Casa de las Americas on Thursday paid tribute to outstanding Mexican painter Diego Rivera, who died 65 years ago and defended the social, union, and labor rights of his nation's workers.

Under the hashtag #NuestrasFechas, the cultural institution recalled on Twitter the great muralist who died on November 24, 1957, in Mexico City, and who was an antifascist fighter.

In homage to the 500th anniversary of indigenous resistance, the exhibition Decolonizaciones (Decolonizations) was inaugurated in October at the Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo House of Studies Museum (Mexico), an institution that treasures the artist’s last archeological collection with over 150 pre-Hispanic pieces and 23 photographs.

Among his most outstanding works are “Dream of a Sunday Afternoon in Alameda Park” (1947); “Epic of the Mexican People,” also known as “The History of Mexico” (1929-1935), as well as “Juchitan River” (1956), the last mural painted by the artist, which has been exhibited since 2010 at the lobby of the Soumaya Museum, in the Mexican capital.

Creator of several murals in different parts of Mexico City’s Historic Heart and other cities such as San Francisco, Detroit and New York, in the United States, Rivera was famous for creating works of high political and social content in public buildings.
