    Hailed as one of the most influential artists of the 20th Century, Diego Rivera's initiation into the arts was very similar to that of his fellow modern masters. Having studied at the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes, part of the old Academia de San Carlos in Mexico, Rivera pushed to continue his artistic studies in Europe and was given a government scholarship to do so. He left Mexico for Madrid in 1907 and from there he continued his classical training in the art historical canon – anchoring himself in the painterly tradition of realism and plein air painting. Traveling across Europe, his palette and artistic vision engaged deeply with his new surroundings steeped in history and idealism, as for example seen in the present view.
