Diego Rivera worked in Europe from 1907 until his return to Mexico in 1921. It was upon his return to post-revolutionary Mexico that Rivera began painting the magnificent murals upon which his reputation largely rests. A superb draftsman, Rivera was capable of portraying the common indigenous people with great dignity and a monumental sense of proportion.
