About Calla Lilly Vendor

Throughout his career, Diego Rivera represented the everyday lives of indigenous peoples of Mexico. Among his most iconic subjects were calla lily vendors. They can be seen in murals, canvas paintings and watercolors.

In this version a jubilant bundle of calla lilies dominates the canvas. In the foreground two women wear traditional fringed shawls, or rebozo, which were not only decorative but utilitarian: the length of the fabric could be used to tie the basket to a vendor’s back.

About Diego Rivera

Diego Rivera (born December 8, 1886, Guanajuato, Mexico—died November 25, 1957, Mexico City) was Mexican painter whose large frescoes helped establish the mural movement in Mexican and international art. His fourth wife was fellow Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, with whom he had a volatile relationship that continued until her death. Due to his importance in the country’s art history, the government of Mexico declared Rivera's works as "monumentos historicos".
