Biography

Diego Rivera, artist and muralist, is considered one of the 20th century's most important painters. Revered in Mexico for both his art and his rambunctious personality, he was instrumental in revitalizing Mexican art and mural painting. His public murals helped create interest in the genre of public art in Mexico and the United States. A devoted Marxist, his work at times was controversial, most famously when Nelson Rockefeller had his RCA mural destroyed because Rivera refused to remove Vladimir Lenin's image.Diego Rivera pencil drawings and art depict the lives of workers, as well as self-portraits and studies of his wife, artist, Frida Kahlo.

As a muralist, artist Diego Rivera's most famous works aren't collectible. His paintings, however, have received much attention at auction and Diego Rivera's artwork prices can rise into the millions. Purchase figural prints online or auction and find your next family heirloom.
