  • The strong colors and stylized forms of Diego Rivera’s “El Venedor de Alcatraces” depict a Mexican peasant, and the burden carried by the country’s working class. Instrumental to the revival of outdoor mural painting, Rivera (1886 – 1957) created frescoes portraying Mexico’s history and social problems in a form that working people could easily access. A strong supporter of revolutionary politics, Rivera expressed his dream of a socialist utopia to Mexicans, making him a legendary Mexican artist.
