An exhibition of thirty-four works by Mexican artist Diego Rivera was officially opened on October 28th, 2014 at the National Art Museum of China in Beijing.
From landscapes created in 1904 to paintings of 1956, as well as three of his iconic murals, the collection is displayed on the fifth floor of the Chinese Museum, one of the largest art galleries in China.
This collection also includes, still life, portraits, nudes and scenes of daily life, representing different phases in art history such as naturalism, cubism and indigenous daily life scenes that deeply influenced Mexican painters of his time.
The director of the National Art Museum of China (NAMOC), Wu Weishan, said that “the Chinese public is very familiar with the artist,” especially with his murals and portraits.
Wu praised the different techniques used by Rivera, such as painting, aquarelle, collage, and pencil, coal and ink drawings.
Mexican ambassador to China Julian Ventura said that Rivera’s murals especially attract Chinese audiences, “because of the ideological component, as he forges his identity as an artist during the first social movement of the twentieth century: the Mexican Revolution in 1910.”
During the exhibition there will be several cultural events of great projection. “Diego Rivera: Pride of Mexico” will be open in Beijing until December 9th.
