Diego (1886) Rivera Sold at Auction Prices

Freskomaler, Portrait painter, Wall painter, Draft draughtsman, Lithographer, Sculptor, b. 1886 - d. 1957

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.

                  Est: $400 - $800

                  Diego Rivera (1886–1957) was a Mexican painter and muralist known for his large-scale murals that celebrate Mexican culture, history, and social justice. He was one of the most prominent figures of the Mexican muralism movement and a leading exponent of public art.Rivera was born in Guanajuato, Mexico, and began studying art at an early age. He later traveled to Europe, where he was influenced by the works of Renaissance masters and modernist movements such as Cubism and Post-Impressionism.In the 1920s, Rivera returned to Mexico and became involved in the burgeoning Mexican muralism movement, which sought to create art that was accessible to the masses and reflected the social and political concerns of the Mexican people. Rivera's murals often depicted scenes of everyday life, historical events, and indigenous culture, as well as the struggles of the working class and the injustices of imperialism and capitalism.One of Rivera's most famous murals is "Man at the Crossroads" (1933), commissioned for the Rockefeller Center in New York City. The mural, which depicted a worker at a crossroads surrounded by images of industry and technology, was controversial for its inclusion of a portrait of Vladimir Lenin. After Rivera refused to remove the portrait, the mural was destroyed, but Rivera later recreated it in Mexico City under the title "Man, Controller of the Universe."In addition to his murals, Rivera also painted numerous easel paintings and drawings, as well as creating illustrations for books and magazines. He was married to the renowned Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, and their tumultuous relationship was the subject of much fascination and speculation.Rivera's work had a profound impact on the development of modern art in Mexico and around the world. He is celebrated for his bold use of color, dynamic compositions, and powerful social commentary, as well as his commitment to making art that was accessible to all. Diego Rivera's legacy as a pioneering muralist and advocate for social justice endures to this day, and his murals continue to inspire viewers with their beauty, complexity, and message of hope.
