Diego Rivera came to Spain between 1907 and 1921. He was impressed by the paintings of El Greco in Toledo. He also went to Paris and was influenced by the Cubists and Pointillists. Rivera is best known for his murals in government buildings in Mexico City. The paintings in this exhibition show his avant garde paintings influenced by Europeans.

Sounds interesting, but unfortunately I have no plans to visit Malaga in the near future. However, I have seen his murals in Mexico City.

I remember when I lived in the US, Frida Kahlo was valued more than Diego Rivera because many feminists liked her strong and independent character. Many artists like Madonna bought her art.

Did any of you see the movie Frida, starring Selma Hayek?

Yes, I saw the film Frida and it made me want to revisit Mexico. Such a vibrant, colourful country.

Hi, Thanks soooo much for this post! I would've never known about this fabulous exhibit on Diego Rivera if it hadn't been for this page. I'm fascinated with Diego Rivera and all Mexican art and culture so thank you very much for sharing this with everyone. I liked this exhibit so much that I shared the information, along with cool pictures of the exhibit from flickr, on my blog: www.mexicoculture.org. I hope you'll stop by and check it out!

Take Care, Sarah

Sarah:

I am glad you saw the exhibition and enjoyed it. Most of the time when I post about art exhibitions I seldom get any feedback from readers.

Hi Benny,

I'm glad that someone responded to your post. I think you should check out my MexiCulture blog and see if you like it! Feel free to leave me your comments there. Any good Mexican art exhibits in the U.S. that you know about? If so, I'd love to hear about them! Have a great day, Sarah

These exhibitions very rarely come to the UK, maybe the organisers think us Brits don't care for Central and South American art.

I love Fernando Botero, but he hardly ever exhibits in the UK. However, having said that I did see a private showing of some of his works in London last year.

benny, if you know of any more of these exhibitions coming up in Spain in the future, please post.

Shame, I couln't manage to get to this one.
