Diego Rivera produced only 13 prints during his long career, encouraged by his dealer Carl Zigrosser of Weyhe Gallery.
Diego Rivera is best known for large-scale public murals, often on the history and future of Mexico. This print presents details of a painting from a 1920s commission at the Secretariat of Public Education, a government building in Mexico City. Lithography—a technique that Rivera favored for its “directness of contact”—allowed him to share his site-specific murals with an even broader public.
