Cross stitch chart or kit from the Scarlet Quince 20th & 21st Century Fine Art Collection.
Diego María de la Concepción Juan Nepomuceno Estanislao de la Rivera y Barrientos Acosta y Rodríguez (December 8, 1886 – November 24, 1957) was a prominent Mexican painter born in Guanajuato, Guanajuato, an active communist, and husband of Frida Kahlo (1929–1939 and 1940–1954). His large wall works in fresco helped establish the Mexican Mural Renaissance. Between 1922 and 1953, Rivera painted murals among others in Mexico 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.
This piece is also known as "Dance in Tehuantepec". Couples in brightly-coloured traditional dress dancing in the square of a small southern Mexican town. Multi-coloured flags are hung around the square, and behind a row of banana and fruit trees more ladies are seated, watching the dancing. (Social Realism, 1928)
