Diego Rivera: From the School of Paris to the Birth of the Mexican School

Agustín Arteaga, Eugene McDermott Director, Dallas Museum of Art

While most people are familiar with Diego Rivera’s monumental murals that tell the story of post-revolutionary Mexico, his early training in the 1910s brought him in touch with the European avant-garde. Over a period of years that he spent in Paris, Rivera worked in a Cubist idiom. Accompanying the Meadows Museum exhibition Picasso/Rivera: Still Life and the Precedence of Form, this lecture focuses on this early period and Rivera’s subsequent shift toward mural painting and the creations of the Mexican school in the following decades.
