Painting with The Masters
Art within Art Series
I guess I had a flower moment. Dom and I have a lot of very artistic glass vases. This week we have been trying all kinds of long stem flowers to see what will work with the new dining table. I wanted to try Calla Lilies and couldn't find them anywhere so I guess this was my inspiration for this painting. I used a similar lady in one of my previous paintings. Rivera did as well. Green is a difficult color to work with but I think this came out well, kind of romantic. ..humm, wonder what's in that gift box? Enjoy!
Diego María de la Concepción Juan Nepomuceno Estanislao de la Rivera y Barrientos Acosta y Rodríguez (December 8, 1886 – November 24, 1957) better known simply as Diego Rivera was a prominent Mexican painter born in Guanajuato and husband of Frida Kahlo (1929–1939 and 1940–1954). His large wall works in fresco helped establish the Mexican Mural Movement in Mexican art. Between 1922 and 1953, Rivera painted murals among others inMexico City, Chapingo, Cuernavaca,San Francisco, Detroit and New York City. In 1931, a retrospective exhibition of his works was held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
