In his mural style, forged in the Mexican Revolution, and in his easel paintings, Rivera created a unique vision of America: a synthesis between the indigenous cultures of the south and the industrial modernity of the North. Rivera was a prodigious talent whose commitment to the power of art as a political act resonates today. As he said, he didn’t believe in God, but he did believe in Picasso.
