ORELLANA, MARGARITA DE
One of the most illustrious native sons of Guanajuato is Diego Rivera, who was born in the state capital in 1886. Though he only lived in this city for a short time during his childhood, there are parts of it that unavoidably seep into his paintings. The same happens with figures such as miners, which the painter always depicted as heroic laborers. This volume also details certain historic events, like the dawn of Independence, which were immortalized in Riveras works, especially in his murals. "How it was that his legendary figure was built? Here the best authors of Mexico help us decipher the strokes that created the myth called Diego Rivera" (Our translation)--Verso cover.
