Diego Rivera is known as one of the three founders of the modern school of Mexican mural painting (together with David Alfaro Siqueiros and José Clemente Orozco). He is often seen as emblematic for the artistic scene in Mexico because of his use of Mexican motifs and the depiction of the Mexican population and traditions. Yet Rivera also travelled to Paris where he got in touch with Pablo Picasso and the Surrealists. Rivera collaborated with André Breton for the Surrealist magazine Minotaure for which he designed a cover. Rivera further travelled to the United States and had a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York during the 1930s.
