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 "The Flower Carrier". A Mexican peasant man in white clothes, a yellow hat, and sandals crouches, with a huge wicker basket of pink daisies on his back supported by a yellow sling. A woman in a lavender shawl and orange skirt steadies the basket as the man attempts to rise to carry his flowers to market. (Social Realism, 1935)
