Photo: Diego Rivera Google Doodle
Check out today’s neat Google-Doodle celebrating Diego Rivera, the great Mexican painter and muralist, influential communist leader and husband of Frida Kahlo.
Diego Rivera was born 125 years ago today, in the city of Guanajuato. He studied art in Mexico City, and further advanced his studies in Europe.
Rivera’s politically charged work helped define the ‘Mexican Muralism’ art movement, while constantly exploring themes related to the physical process of human development and the consequences of the technological development.
Rivera passed away on Nov. 24, 1957.
The doodle features Diego Rivera standing on a scaffold, working on a mural. The mural in the doodle chronicles Mexico’s cultural transformation from its indigenous roots, to the current boom of the age of technology.
